Esteeming God's Word
God values His word.
He expects us to as well.
This command was given to Moses concerning future kings of Israel:
“When he takes the throne of his kingdom,
he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law,
taken from that of the Levitical priests.
It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the
days of his life so that he may learn to revere the Lord his God
and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees”
Rest assured, this was not to be an assigned task pawned off to some lowly scribe in the kingdom.
It is very specific on God’s part in saying – “...he is to write for himself on a scroll.” This was not a menial or unimportant thing.
The King was to be a man of Gods’ Word.
As are we!
And there is something to be said about writing things down instead of just listening while someone else talks or listening and letting someone else write things down.
You retain so much more of what you write over what you merely hear.
So one way that God shows us just how much He values His Word is by requiring the King over His people Israel to write it down for himself on a scroll.
Do you value, honor and esteem His Word?
Have you looked into His Word and sought it as if it were treasure?
Truth be told – it is of far greater value than any treasure you can find!
