“Therefore I love Your commandments above gold, yes, above fine gold.  Therefore I esteem right all Your precepts
concerning everything, I hate every false way.” 
(Psalm 119:127-128)

What has the most value?  Things that come and go or that which is
forever?  We often lose sight of the
truth of every situation and focus upon the created rather than the
Creator.  Look to the Lord first and know
that all of His commands are good and righteous.  Know that in Him is the hope of every
generation.  Do not walk in the false
way.  Taste and see that the Lord is

Lord, I have been chased around and have chased around many false paths
that have gone nowhere.  Lead me O Lord
in the way of righteousness that I may now and always walk according to the
goodness of Your way.  Teach my heart to
cherish to goodness You have directed and walk in the way in which You
lead.  Grant me the true wealth of

Lord Jesus, lead me this day to
walk according to the goodness of all of the precepts that You have
revealed.  Let me not be hindered by
temptations along the way, rather keep me steadily on the straight and narrow
path which You have prepared.  Walk with
me Lord Jesus that I may learn from You as Your humble servant.  Teach me how to obey all that You
command.  Amen.
