Edifier du Jour-Psalm 119:97-105(NASB)
97 O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. 98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For they are ever mine. 99 I have more insight than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the aged, Because I have observed Your precepts. 101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. 102 I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, For You Yourself have taught me. 103 How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 From Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
This is one of those scary passage where you have to admit you don't have the zeal of the reader. Do I meditate on the Word all day long? No. Have I restrained my feet from every evil way? Maybe, but it's my eyes, ears and mouth (and occasionally keyboard and mouse fingers) that get me in trouble. However, the more we get into the Word, the more likely we are to be following what it says. We'll be wiser than out elders, assuming our elders aren't in the word as much as us. By getting a handle on truth, we'll better see evil.
