READ PSALM 119:9-16.
“How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of Your Word. I’m single-minded in pursuit
of You; don’t let me miss the road signs You’ve posted. I’ve banked Your promises in the vault of my heart so I won’t
sin myself bankrupt. Be blessed, God; train me in Your ways of wise living. I’ll transfer to my lips all the counsel that
comes from Your mouth; I delight far more in what You tell me about living than in gathering a pile of riches. I
ponder every morsel of wisdom from You; I attentively watch how You’ve done it. I relish everything You’ve told me of
life, I won’t forget a word of it.”
—Psalm 119:9-16 (MSG)
