~Friday for Friends~
"1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night." Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
“Meditate” sounds slow and something people did a century or two ago. Not for us fast-paced folk.
Bad news. Or good news, probably. Meditating on God’s Word is a good thing. This is not coming from a person who has it all figured out and who is patient and loves to ponder the Bible. No, I am very often impatient about meditating. I don’t usually take the time – or don’t take much – to just think about how awesome God is, about how awesome His Word is.
But it is a good thing.
How about you? Do you like to reflect on God and His law? When was a time when you slowed down and did it?
