Psalm 119 (4)

Some people use fireplaces to heat their homes in the winter. They put wood in the fireplace, light it and then sit close to the fire to keep warm.
The room heats up, and the people feel comfortable, so they forget about the fire. They watch TV or read a book or talk with their family. But soon the people begin to feel cold again. Someone stirs up the fire or adds more wood. Soon the fire is burning brightly again.
Christians need to stay close to God and His Word. When we are close to God, it is like a fire that burns brightly inside of us. But when we forget to read the Bible and pray, the fire inside us becomes cold. Then we are not doing what God wants us to do.
Verse 36 of our Bible Reading reminds us to think about God’s Word more than other things in the world. When we do that, the fire inside us will burn brightly again.
Be sure to stay close to God and His Word today.
