Faithful…

By the hand of God, scribes have maintained the Scriptures so accurately for thousands of years. For generations, they have meticulously copied the Word, to the smallest jot and tittle.

If they make one mistake, the whole scroll is deemed unusable, and they have to start all over again. Before they write the name of God on the scroll, they will bathe themselves.

They hold great reverence for the Word and the name of God. As believers, we have the revelation of the New Covenant in Jesus.

Yet, we often treat the Word carelessly, bending it, softening it, or compromising it to fit what we want. We don’t really follow it, we take it lightly, or we take it for granted, and we don’t really treasure it. But the scribes of Israel, without Jesus, treated the Word so meticulously and reverently.

We need to treat the Word at least as reverently as the scribes of Israel. Cherish it, follow it, and take it at full strength as a sacred treasure in your life. The Word is a treasure, but it only gives life to those who treasure it.

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. Psalm 119:18

Today, take time to spend with the Word. Receive each word in reverence as the Word of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
