who you know, not what

the guys Jesus was hardest on were also the ones who dedicated their lives to reading, studying, memorizing, and teaching the bible.

don’t ever think that’s what it’s about.  rather, it’s about knowing God, loving him, and serving him.  it’s 100% relationship.

things psalm 1 doesn’t say:

  • his delight is reading through the bible every year of his adult life
  • his delight is in memorizing a new scripture every day
  • his delight is in correlating the use of every word in the bible

rather, his delight is meditating on the things God has said – like i would a letter from the one i love.  to know God, to begin to grasp his ways and the things that are important to him, so i can live pleasing to him.
