“This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me” (Psalm 119:50). It is not simply a book of historical fact, instruction, commandments, or truth. It is the heart and mind of God. God’s word to us. Give it the reverence it deserves. Read it. Obey it. Love it. A lamp to our feet. A light to our path. Food for our soul. Understanding to our heart. Knowledge to our mind. Life.
