Understanding

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

Throughout the stanza titled "Mem," the psalmist repeatedly writes of the understanding he has gained from taking in and then meditating on God's Word.

  • Discernment
  • Comprehension
  • Wisdom
  • Awareness
  • Insight
  • Prudence
  • Discretion
  • Judgement

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