Priceless / Worthless
One mans’ trash another man’s treasure. We live in a world that more and more have not respect, knowledge, understanding, or appreciation for the Word of God. Pictured is one of the most expensive Bibles a person can purchase today. The binding, paper, design are treasured. People are willing to pay upwards of $400 dollars for a Bible like this today. However, someone who purchased such a costly Bible died. Their wealth in faith, appreciation, and love for God’s word was inherited by someone who saw no value. Let me ask you a question. IF a person does not read, study, and treasure the Word of God, it matters not how much one spends for the book if they do not sow and grow in the Word of God.
If one was to give an appraisal of the Bible in your life based on reading, study, memorization, and obedience, what would be the value?
Psalms 119 is the longest psalm and it is appropriate that it’s subject of focus is the exaltation of the Word of God.
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches. I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word. Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” 11-18
May we treasure the Word of God.
May my children treasure the Word of God.
I hope that my Bibles are not found given away in a garage sale one day for $.99.
The Word of God is Priceless to me.
In Him, By Him, Through Him,
