Words from the Heart for Monday May 3rd, 2021
Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the Lord.
Psalm 107:43 (NLT)
Those Who are Wise
Alex Trebek was more than just the host of the TV quiz show Jeopardy. Among his many activities, he was honorary president of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and long-time supporter of the Canadian Geographical Challenge. He inspired Canadians, and particularly generations of young Canadians, to learn more about their country. Ben Woodward, Challenge winner in 2019 said, ‘I am incredibly indebted to Mr. Trebek for being such an inspiring figure in my life. I would like to thank him for always believing in students like me.”
David was a man of God’s Word. He loved to study all that God had spoken and commanded. It was upon God’s instruction that David was able to make wise decisions and lead well. He wasn’t perfect, and he paid a high price for the decisions he made that were in opposition to God’s counsel. So, he speaks from experience when he writes in Psalm 107:43: “Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the Lord.” The Lord never changes. The Bible says that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. So, as we look at what He has done in the past, we can learn what He will do in the present and in the future. As we do, David says we will be wise. There seems to be a lack of wisdom in our world today. As the world moves away from the Bible, it is natural that the wisdom that God alone can provide would be missing. If you need to make some wise choices, look into what God says in His Word, the Bible.
These have been words from the heart.
