What Do You Value?

Psalm 119:72 says,

The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver.

We understand "the law of Your mouth" to be God's Word.  And what the psalmist is saying is, "Lord, Your word is better to me than a pile of silver or a pile of gold."

Let's say you are offered a position at a particular company—offered a great job, great increase of pay, and maybe the housing in that area is less.  It is your dream job!  But you investigate things, and you find out there is not a good spirit-filled Bible teaching church in that town where the job is.  But you can make a lot more money!  Do you go?  It depends on how much you value God's Word.

One gentleman who was very involved in my church came to me one day and announced that he was moving.  I asked him, "Did you find a church there?"  He replied, "No, no.  There's not a good church in the town at all.  But I'm going to be making a lot more money.  We can get a bigger house.  It's going to be great."

A year later his teenage daughter was pregnant, his boy was in juvenile hall, he and his wife were getting a divorce, and he was back on drugs.  But, hey!  He was making a lot more money.

In our society, it is so easy to make decisions based solely on money.  And sadly, it is the ruin of many a family and relationship.  Value first God's Word.  Value it more than anything our world can give you.

If you do, you will never be disappointed.
