More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
The words of God, His testimony, His statutes, His judgment, are more precious than much gold; sweeter than honey.
Many years ago, I went to England with my son Mike. One of my favorite memories is of the two rooms in the Tower in which there were cases filled with silver in one room, gold in another. To see just one piece of such treasure is amazing. To see a whole room filled with gold is overwhelming. The rich beauty holds one’s attention.
Every time I read today’s verses, I am reminded of the beauty of all that gold. Yet, God’s words, thoughts, and laws are of far more value than a hundred rooms filled with gold.
His words are sweeter than honey taken right from the comb. If you’ve never had that treat, you are missing out! Yet, the words of God are far sweeter than any honey. If we could only understand how precious, how sweet it is, to learn and understand His words–His Word–our lives would be more enriched, far sweeter, than we can ever imagine.
To read His Word is good. To meditate on His Word is better. To apply His Word to our lives is best.
