Text: Psalm 10-12
Psalm 12 contains this gemstone:
The words of the Lord are pure words,
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times. (Psalm 12:6)
As we read through the Bible together this year, we are, every day, being blessed by words of great worth and beauty. They are pure, unblemished and perfect. The image here is of silver that has been refined over and over again – seven times, the number of perfection. The idea is of absolute and complete purity, and hence great value. God’s words perfectly pure like this and are also of great value. In them is truth. In them is life. In them light. In is hope. And in them is love. I hope you are able to engage God’s Word every day.
