Devotional May 29 2020

Trinity Church exists to love God / love others / serve the community

 As a seminary student years ago I was encouraged to practice a number of spiritual disciplines. One of the repeated phrases during my time in school was to always make time for your personal devotions. In one of my classes one of the assignments was to hand write select chapters of the Bible. In Deuteronomy, Moses gave instructions to the Israelites for the day a king would rule over them. 

Deuteronomy 17:18-20 explains why such a practice was so important. 

When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law, taken from that of the priests, who are Levites. It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees and not consider himself better than his brothers and turn from the law to the right or to the left. Then he and his descendants will reign a long time over his kingdom in Israel. 

The principles are very simple first he is to, “write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law.” Then, “he is to read it all the days of his life.” Finally, “follow carefully all the words of this law.” The result was that “he may learn to revere the LORD.” 

I would highly encourage you to take some time now to try this. Psalm 1 is an excellent starting point and the following is your outline. 

1. Write the passage. 

2. Read your copy. 

3. Pray about how to follow what it says.
