Read It

Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

Exercise: some of us like it, many do not, but most of us know we ought to get more than we do. Something as simple a daily walk is recommended over no activity at all for a modicum of health benefit. In a similar way, we should be concerned about our spiritual health. Christians know they ought to be in God’s word, but sometimes finding the time seems as daunting as getting down to the gym. But just as we become unfit physically for lack of exercise, we become spiritually flabby for lack of spiritual exercise. The first and perhaps most important step is to establish a time, something that becomes routine. For some, that may be first thing in the morning; others, just before bedtime; or during a commute, during a meal, perhaps even during a walk or run with earphones and an audio Bible. Make a commitment that you will be in God’s word on a regular basis. And stick with it. Then you can say with the Psalmist, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
