Luke 2, Leviticus 24-25

Luke 2:19 – But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Lord God, your Word and the deeds spoken about therein are truly a treasure.  Your Word, O God, is life.  It is power.  It is truth. It is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness to equip your servants for every good thing.  It is living.  It is compelling.  It is comforting.  It is hope-filling.  It gives guidance and instruction.  It fill my heart with awe and wonder.  It tells me the history of your actions in the world.  It is such a treasure.  Sadly, Lord God my mind flits to other things and my heart treasures other things more.  But, Lord God, your Word is truly one of your greatest gifts to mankind.  It is everything I need for life now and it reveals everything I need to believe for an eternity with you.  Teach me to treasure it more and more.  Keep bringing it into my mind all day long that I never leave it’s truths behind. It is my highest treasure. Amen.
