A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34

They are more precious than gold, much pure gold;

They are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

In keeping them, there is great reward.

But you are a shield around me, O LORD;
you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
To the LORD I cry aloud,
and he answers me from his holy hill.
Psalm 3:3-4


I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
Psalm 63:4-5


I can't go on a nature walk everyday in a distant city as I did today. But I can go to the Word-- I can go to His precepts, I can go to His statutes, I can go to His ordinances, I can go to His commandments. And in going to them, I can find rest, I can find wisdom, I can find restoration for my soul, I can find radiance for my eyes, I can find strength for my bones. His Word promises me these benefits and multitudes more.
