Riches that Last

The law from your mouth is more precious to me
       than thousands of pieces of silver and gold. Psalm 119:72 NIV
The law of your mouth is better to me
   than thousands of gold and silver pieces. Psalm 119:72 ESV

This verse in Psalm 119 presents a challenging question to you as a Christian parent.  Is this truth something that influences you more than your bank balances?  The psalmist proclaims the word of God is of such value that gold and silver pale in comparison.  Take some time to consider this reality. Is this your testimony? Would your children say this verse speaks accurately of you and what you value?

Give this some thought. Let me know what you think. We will return to this thought in the next post.
