Psalm 119 (9)

For thousands of years, people have searched for gold. They have climbed dangerous mountains to look for gold. They have mined in deep tunnels under the ground. They have waded in streams, hoping to find gold.
In verse 127 of our Bible Reading today, the writer tells us, “Lord, I love your commands more than purest gold.” God’s teachings in the Bible should be the most valuable thing that we have. We should treasure God’s Word like some people treasure their gold and jewels.
Gold and other possessions can be lost or stolen. But when we take God’s Word into our heart, no one can take that away from us. We will always have God’s words with us to help us stay away from sin.
God’s Word is not like other books or teachings in the world today. It is always true, and we can depend on it to lead us every day. Be sure that reading the Bible is the most important thing you do today!
