Friends in Christ Weekly Message
October 5, 2002

[This week just scripture, no commentary.]
7The revelation of God is whole
     and pulls our lives together.
The signposts of God are clear
     and point out the right road.
8The life-maps of God are right,
     showing the way to joy.
The directions of God are plain
     and easy on the eyes.
9God's reputation is twenty-four carat gold,
     with a lifetime guarantee.
The decisions of God are accurate
     down to the nth degree.

10God's Word is better than a diamond,
     better than a diamond set between emeralds.
You'll like it better than strawberries in spring,
     better than red, ripe strawberries.

11There's more: God's Word warns us of danger
     and directs us to hidden treasure.
12Otherwise how will we find our way?
     Or know when we play the fool?
13Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
     Keep me from stupid sins,
     from thinking I can take over your work;
Then I can start this day sun-washed,
     scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.

14These are the words in my mouth;
     these are what I chew on and pray.
Accept them when I place them
     on the morning altar,
O God, my Altar-Rock,
     God, Priest-of-My-Altar.

Psalm 19:7-14 (Message*)
