December 26, 2017: SOAP #2945:  Psalm 117; 119:81-176; 2John; 3John

Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) 119:162 I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil.
Psalm (MSSG) 119:162 I'm ecstatic over what you say, like one who strikes it rich.

Observation:   This verse is not about the value of God's Word; it is about how valuable it was to the psalmist.   The Word has great value!   But that does not mean we treat it as having much value.  People who know us can easily tell what we treasure.

Application:   How valuable is God's Word to me?   That can be seen in how I read it, how I meditate on it, how I apply it to my daily actions, how I share it with others.

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, both my words and actions demonstrate the value I place on Your word.   I want others to see that I highly value what you have said.  Use my life to encourage others to value Your word.   Amen
