Psalm 119 (2)
Bible Reading: Psalm 119:9-16
Sunday 17 January 2021 © The Upper Room.
Today’s Bible Reading talks about young people.
Verse 9 has a question and an answer:
“How can a young person live a pure life? By following your instructions.” Christian parents have the responsibility of teaching their children about God and His Word. This begins at home and extends to times of learning, worship and fellowship with other Christians.
Verse 11 tells us something that all young people need to learn. “I study your teachings very carefully. Why? So I will not sin against you.” If I want to pass a spelling test, I need to study. So, if I want to learn how to avoid sin, I need to study God’s Word.
God wants people of all ages to study His Word and learn how to serve Him. Verses 14 and 16 remind us that we should enjoy reading the Bible. When we know about God and His plan for our lives, we will be happy.
Take time to read the Bible today. Then remember what you read and apply it to your life. —PD
