We're still studying Psalm 119 in our women's Sunday School class which always leads to great conversation and cross references.
One of our verses was Psalm 119:113
I hate double-minded men, but I love your law.
We see the world is double-minded, but so am I at times.
The definition for being double-minded is ambivalence, which means mixed feelings, unable to choose between 2 courses of action, divided and half-hearted. Choosing between 2 courses of action is the life of the Christian.
And I thought of Proverb 31:30. The choice to spend my life trying to be charming and beautiful or to put my bulls-eye on fearing the Lord and loving his law(God's Word).
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
- Does the scale and the mirror determine what kind of a day I will have?
- Do I put as much effort into fearing the Lord and loving him reverently as I do in getting ready for the day?
- How much time do I spend picking out my clothes, putting on make-up and doing my hair each morning?
- Do I look forward to getting to know God by saturating my heart, mind and soul with His Word and spending time in his presence?
