“Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long!” Psalm 119:97
It is well to meditate upon the things of God–because it is only by pondering the Scriptures, that we get the real nutriment out of them. A man who hears many sermons–is not necessarily well-instructed in the faith. We may read so many religious books that we overload our brains, and they may be unable to work under the weight of the great mass of paper and of printer’s ink.
The man who reads but one book, and that book his Bible, and then meditates much upon it–will be a better scholar in Christ’s school than he who merely reads hundreds of books, and does not meditate at all!
Oh, that we might get into the very heart of the Word of God–and get that Word into ourselves!
