I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.

Psalm 119:14

Something is only worth what you will give it up for. If it’s worthless, you might not care about it. Some things are so low we actually pay people to take them away! But there are some things we can’t give away for any reason at all. No amount of money or persuasion short of torture could pry them out of our hands.

Can you say the word of God is that important to you? I don’t mean your Bible. You can get a new one of those from Wal-Mart tomorrow. I mean the words of God in your heart, in your mind, in your very soul! Do you rejoice not just in having them but in following his word?

How you answer that question can tell you a lot about how much you value your relationship to God.
