“They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.” Psalm 19:10
The teachings of the Lord are more precious than gold. Hmm, does that sound right? Do we seek after the teachings of what God wants to do in our lives more than what we can gain from life? There are many things we may call precious in our life, but David calls the Word of God precious and sweet.
Usually, words like precious and sweet are what lay claim to our heart. When something has made it to the precious status, it usually receives our undivided attention, and our heart is solely attracted. David refers to the teachings of God with these two words, because he was the man after God’s own heart. He wanted his heart to have God’s Words holding onto it.
So now comes the question for each of us. What is holding your heart? What are the things in life that are precious to us? When the teachings of God make their way to our heart, they have a way of showing us what is precious and sweet in life. They have a way of bringing light into our heart and exposing the deeds of darkness. The power in which they are brought into our heart and the love in which they are shown gives us a loving and pure heart. His words are precious, because they love us and are spoken out of a heart of love straight for our heart. They are words which will give us hope for today and a clear vision of eternity. There is nothing in this world like it!
Today in the workplace:
Allow His Word to become precious to you… because you are precious to Him.
