Scripture to Meditate On

In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. 
Psalms 119:14

Now this is one very striking statement. Do you think that the psalmist meant it? I think that we have to say that he did. Imagine that: to delight in, to revel in, to be enthralled by what the Scriptures have to say more than a very large bank account.

But if you think about it, that actually makes a lot of sense. There are large problems that wealth cannot solve, important goals that it cannot cause you to achieve. And one day, however much wealth a person may have will disappear. It will be completely lost to him. '…we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.'

But the wisdom of the Word is something that provides dividends for this life as well as for the next.
