One of the characters in the Bible who greatly expressed a love for the Word of God is David. In Psalm 19, he described it as something desirable like gold and honey. One cannot help but be intrigued with the reasons why he compared God’s Word to such things. As we read the rest of the psalm, we will see the qualities of the Word of God that make it worth than gold.
The Word of God is perfect.
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul . . . (Psalm 19:7)
The Word of God is sure.
. . . the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. . . (Psalm 19:7)
The Word of God is right.
. . . the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart . . . (Psalm 19:8)
The Word of God is pure.
. . . the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes . . . (Psalm 19:8b)
The Word of God is true.
. . . the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether . . . (Psalm 19:9)
In the coming weeks, we will understand the attributes of God’s Word more as we go through the Wordview series. We pray that we will learn to delight in God’s Word like David, and see its worth like he did.
