From Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:
Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is always with me. ~ Psalm 119:98
As we develop understanding of the law of God, we gain skill in living in accordance with our own created nature and God’s revealed will. The person who spurns this law can learn only by trial and error — a slow, painful, and laborious process.
PRAYER: God, as people compete for my attention today, calling me here to learn a little of this, and there for a little of that, help me to keep my mind stayed on Christ. Amen.
