Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 March 14

“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb”
(Psalms 19:7-10).

Today’s Morsel:  In most of the eating establishments down south here in America, you are sure to hear waitresses call you sweetie.  It is a term of friendliness to hopefully make you feel welcome, and will cause you leave a good tip. David said that the laws, testimonies, statutes, commandments, fear, and judgments of the Lord, which is the word of God, are more to be desired than gold, sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.  The honeycomb is the purest and sweetest of the honey.  And so is the gospel.  It is the purest and sweetest taste to mankind because it represents Christ.  As David admonishes, “O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalms 34:8).

Sing:  Sweeter as the years go by, sweeter as the years go by; richer, fuller, deeper, Jesus’ love is sweeter, sweeter as the years go by.

Thought For Today:  O’ taste and see that the Lord is good.

  1. "...The fear of the LORD is clean..."

    Wow, so thankful that God's version of fear - a healthy reverence for Him - is a pure, clean thing. The fear and sorrow of this world works death, and is cast out by His perfect love. There is even a godly sorrow, which works repentance to salvation not to be repented of. So glad for everything in creation there is a pure, clean, godly version that is meant for our good, intended for our benefit, and designed by our Creator.
