Numbers 9:1-10:10; Proverbs 6:20-7:27; Mark 16:1-20

Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart. Jeremiah 15:16, NKJV

Does the reading of God’s Word cause your heart to rejoice? Depending on the condition of your soul, God’s Word can be sweet to the taste (Ps. 119:103), or like a bitter pill of conviction (Heb. 4:12). If you’re enjoying sweet fellowship with the Lord, His Word will delight your heart. But if there is unconfessed sin in your life, God’s Word may trigger feelings of guilt and regret. How does God’s Word affect you? —E. V.

Open Thy word of truth, that I may see,
Thy message written, clear and plain for me;
Then in sweet fellowship, walking with Thee,
Thine image on my life, engraved will be. —Mary A. Lathbury
