What Hurts the Heart of Jesus? Day 12

main image

Scripture: Psalm 119:7 I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.

Devotional: Today’s passage brings to mind something that we don’t often think of when we think of acts of worship, and that is learning and memorizing the Word of God.  Typically we think of singing, praying, or giving our tithes and offerings when we worship. But this passage helps us to see how writing the Word of God upon our heart is an act of praise. 

When you think about it, the more you learn and memorize the Word of God, the more you know God and how to please Him. Having His words engrained in your heart and mind helps you to be a living sacrifice more easily. 

So praise Him today with an upright heart as you learn His laws!
