Whoever is wise…

Can’t believe it, but last week was the first time I’d ever set foot IN The Library of Congress. It was a fast visit as a colleague from across the pond and I were on a two day walking tour of D.C.. In the Grand Hall is a case with a copy of the 15th century Gutenberg Bible. It’s a copy of the Bible in Latin that pre-dated the Reformation by about a century.

This morning I was listening to the psalms while doing some chores. In the early 100s, some of the Psalms recount the faithfulness of God so that the people of Israel may be strengthened in their faith in God. At the end of such reminders in 107, I heard this:

“Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.” (Psalms‬ ‭107:43‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Now, clearly this is nothing new to regular readers of this blog. A, perhaps ‘the,’ main theme of this blog is to point us to Scripture so as to stay on the right path in our journey as disciples.

A path I walked outside Oxford, England

So, as we walk the path, let is be wise and recount the greatness of God and remember His steadfastness as we dwell in His word and engage Him in prayerful conversation.
