n the book, Amazing Grace, an interesting story is told about a young man named Arlo.  He had a godly grandfather.  When Arlo got married to his wife, his grandfather gave them a wedding gift.  It was a beautiful, leather-bound Bible with their names engraved on its cover.  Arlo and his wife appreciated the gift of a Bible, but never took it out of the box.  He stored it away. 

 

Every once in a while, his grandfather would ask, “Did you like the Bible I gave you?” They assured him that they did.  They sent him a thank-you note.  But he wouldn’t let it rest.  “What did you think about the Bible I gave you?” he would ask with frequency.

 

Finally, Arlo took the Bible from its box and began to leaf through it.  When he did, he discovered that his grandfather had put a $20 bill at the beginning of Genesis, and $20 at the beginning of Exodus, and $20 at the beginning of every book in the Bible—$1320 in total in cash!  Arlo says that he never would have discovered how valuable that gift was had his grandfather not kept prompting him.

 

I am a grandfather now and I want to imitate Arlo’s grandfather.  Do you like the Bible that you hold in your hands today?  Do you like the Bible that you have on your shelf or night stand?  Have you leafed through its pages and discovered the unbelievable wealth of wisdom it contains?  It is not worth $20 or $1320.  It is worth more than all the silver and all gold the world contains.

 

It is “God’s Wisdom for Your Way.”  In today’s message, God’s word will remind us of the treasure it is both for our day-to-day living and for all of eternity.

“God’s Wisdom for Your Way”

Psalm 119:9-11

 

  1. A common struggle

How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word (119:9).

 

  1. The way is hazardous
  2. The word is helpful
  1. A certain spirit

With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments (119:10)!

 

  1. A spirit of determination
  2. A spirit of dependence
  1. A crucial strategy

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you (119:11).

 

  1. Learn the word
  2. Live the word
