The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
Life goes so much smoother, doesn't it, when we follow the Directions?
I think of the pure joy of Pumpkin when he has a spoonful of honey--our remedy for coughs and throats that feel poorly--his face lights up because he loves the soothing sweetness.
How I long for that when I pour His word into my heart.
