A precursor to my next post, I guess. I read Psalm 1 this morning during my … not-sure-what-to-call-it time; quiet time seems too trite, devotional time seems too clichéd. Verse 2 “but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” left me a bit thoughtful. I’m currently wrestling with how I feel about the Old Testament, the “law” if you will.
David was making a point, but if I’m no longer under law, but justified by faith (Gal 3:23-25), what use is it to me to meditate on the law?
Fast forward a few hours, and I’m cleaning the bathroom, a little frustrated with a member of my family for the state it was left in (no names). As I cleaned, I was thinking about how best to deal with this person. This lead to me considering what the most Christ-like response would be, and whether that response should just be an attitude of servanthood. After all, I’ve left plenty of mess behind for others to clean up.
And then it hit me. I was meditating on the best way to be Christlike, and in that process found my attitude changed. So, I hope that makes sense.
However, I still need to carry through with it instead of just thinking about it. That’s just a little bit harder 😉
