Understanding

Today's reading: Psalm 119:97-104 (Mem)

Throughout the stanza titled Mem, verses 97-104, the psalmist repeatedly writes of the understanding he has gained from taking in and then meditating on God's Word. Although I certainly recognize and know what the word "understanding" means, I decided to look up some synonyms, or alternative words, to give me an even better comprehension of what the psalmist is describing. Here are some of the other words for understanding that I found:

  • Knowledge
  • Discernment
  • Comprehension
  • Wisdom
  • Awareness
  • Insight
  • Prudence
  • Discretion
  • Judgment

What amazing benefits we get when we choose to spend time taking in, considering and then putting into practice, God's Word.

Is it your practice to regularly meditate on (consider, reflect, mull over) God's Word, and why is this so important? How has God's Word given you understanding? What's one example of how God's Word has made you "wiser"? Tami
