(Proverbs 6:23 KJV) For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
Here, in a nutshell, is a summary of the daily routine of a disciple of Jesus. We start with the “commandment” (4687) [mitsvah], the law, the written Word. Every day we should start by looking at what God has written.
Then comes the time of the “law” (teaching NASB) (8451) [torah]. Don’t ever just read. Think. Meditate. Remind yourself of how Christian meditation is different from that of the eastern religions such as yoga. Eastern meditation seeks to empty the mind. Christian meditation seeks to fill the mind and heart with the truth.
Don’t forget the “reproofs” (8433b). If you never find any rough edges you aren’t looking hard enough. Have you noticed how rocks keep showing up in your garden or your field? When I prepare a bulletin board at school to put up new paper I go over it carefully and remove all the old staples. It does not matter how many times I go over it. When I put up the paper I find staples that I missed. Get used to it. Take the staples out of your life as they are shown to you.
So? Following Jesus is a daily living with a living savior. Take advantage of that. Enjoy the process. Glory in every little staple that you are able to remove.
