I encountered this little tidbit of wisdom while reading Ancient Paths: Rediscovering Delight in the Word of God by Corey Russell. Read and consider …
‘Matthew Henry, a theologian and minister of the 17th century best known for publishing a commentary on the entire Bible recounts how his father recommended he read Psalm 119 in order to cultivate a love for the Scriptures:
“Once pressing the Study of the Scriptures, he advised to take a Verse of Psalm 119 every Morning to meditate upon, and so go over the Psalm twice in the year, and that (saith he) will bring you to be in love with all the rest of the Scripture; and he often said, All grace grows, as love to the Word of God grows.”’
While I have yet to give this a try, Lord willing, it may be in my future … and I love to read that such a saint as Matthew Henry was taught by his father how to develop a love for the Scripture … one day may some or all of my children and/or grandchildren say the same thing of me … ALL glory to God!!!
And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved. Psalm 119:47 (KJV)
May it be so in my life as it was in David’s Lord!
