A worthy objective for training the heart and the mind…

To join the psalmist in this exclamation:

“for I find my delight in your commandments, which I love. I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.” ‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭119:47-48‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

The discipline of sitting and reading God’s love letter to us forms our mind.

We may not get it at first, but like the waves gradually change a coast line, His word gradually changes us. Sit and read and you will grow to find delight in His word. This is one fruit of the discipline of reading.
