I have a suggestion for your Saturday. Since most people do something different on Saturdays, I have a suggestion for something new and different. Saturday is one of my workdays, but I still take the beginning of the day a little slower. Maybe you do the same.
Here is my suggestion for what you might do on this day.
Let me suggest that you read Psalm 119. Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in Scripture. It’s made up of 176 versus which in some way or the other all talk about God‘s Word. It’s a delightful passage that helps you think seriously about how God speaks to us and what God wants to communicate to us.
The entire chapter is fascinating in how it is put together. It is made up of 22 strophes or individual stanzas. It’s an alphabetical acrostic. Each strophe is made up of eight verses, equaling the total of 176.
In each strophe, every verse begins with the same letter of the Hebrew alphabet, beginning with Aleph and ending with Tau. Each strophe is constructed identically. Of course, as you would expect, this arrangement does not carry over into English translations.
Another thing you might do on a Saturday is to memorize one or more verses from Psalm 119. Just to let you know how possible this is, I have a friend who has memorized all of psalm 119. It takes him more than 20 minutes to recite the entire passage!
Here are some verses I would recommend you to memorize.
First, Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.”
Second, Psalm 119:45, “And I will walk at liberty (literally, in a wide place), for I seek thy precepts.”
Third, Psalm 119:11. “Thy word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee.”
By doing this, you’ll be doing exactly what the psalm encourages us do in hiding God’s word in our hearts. Treasuring God’s Word in your heart will help keep you from sin.
