Reading Psalm 119:65-80
My sweet husband planned out a sweet proposal when we got engaged, he has always been a very romantic guy…I love that about him. My romantic guy married a very sentimental girl that keeps and documents just about everything. When he asked me to marry him I took pictures of everything…I even asked a nice lady to take pictures of us in front of a scenic mountain view.
I tucked the camera in my purse, only to realize a few hours later that my drink spilled and ruined the contents of my bag…camera included (I know, genius move). The photos were gone…they were valuable memories.
We determine what things are worth to us and how much value they have. The Psalmist in verse seventy-two speaks of the value of God’s Word. He says it is worth more than silver or gold, it means if he had a choice he would choose God’s Word over money. Would we make that same choice? Is God’s Word more valuable to us than any amount of money the world could throw at us? The Psalmist considered the Word of God to be priceless.
In the last eighty verses the psalmist has poured out his love and adoration for the Word of God. He has expressed how God has taught him, revived him, opened his eyes and given him understanding. He sees the power and immense worth of God’s Truth.
Here is the thing…Matthew 6:21 says, where your treasure is, there is our heart also. What we treasure will show, our heart will be there and it will reflect in our lives daily. If our treasure is things that are superficial then our hearts and lives will reflect it, but the same is true if God’s Word is our treasure…our lives will reflect it.
