Psalm 119:103 – God’s Words, Sweeter Than Honey

Sweeter Than Honey

“How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103 ESV)

Psalm 119 is the longest chapter found in Scripture and is mainly known for its teaching on God’s law.

Psalm 119 is not simply about what to do and not do, but about how God’s law deepens our relationship with him.

Exodus 4:10-12 – Unlikely Leaders

We Need More Leaders Like Moses In The Church

Moses was not a gifted speaker. He was reluctant to trust God when he told him he would lead the Israelites (Exodus 4).

In fact, could it be you?

Proverbs 1:5 – Lessons From The Wise

Daily Devotional Bible Verse

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance
(Proverbs 1:5 ESV)

Think about a person you would consider wise. Does this person always give their opinion or advice on something? Do they talk too much? Probably not.

Wise people seldom view themselves as wise. Instead, they learn from the people around them each day. The wise are not puffed up with knowledge. They’re not obsessed to get glory for their wisdom.
