“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 good.

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 righteousness.

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.
