March 2: The Center of Our Hearts




In Psalm 19, God’s creativity is at the forefront, describing in several analogies the endless possibilities that exist through God. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth. Whatever opportunties we are given, we are reminded that the law of the Lord is perfect. As such, we need to keep his law at the center of our hearts. As we journey through life all roads lead back to the Lord’s teachings. No matter how grand our accomplishments may be, nothing is more important than the decrees of the Lord. The Laws of the Lord are in place for our joy, but also to protect us from our transgressions. We are reminded that life’s journey, no matter how joyful and fruitful it may be, is that we do our very best to avoid willful sin and to always go back to the Law of the Lord, for it is perfect and will ultimately lead us all to fulfilling lives.
