My hands also I will lift up to Your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on Your statutes.
Psalm 119:41-48 [ http://iz3.me/La0P1z3Fe1A1 ]
Recently a Los Angeles street artist pranked retail giant Best Buy. He created empty boxes and snuck them into stores. The boxes looked like an official product with bar code, price, and label. But a closer look showed these words on the box: “Another Gadget You Don’t Really Need.” Discovering the prank, the stores removed the boxes immediately, but the media kept the story alive for days.

We often spend a lot of money for items whether we need them or not. Some possessions assume great value to us. Others we soon toss out. But the one item everyone should value above all else is the Word of God. The Scottish Christians of earlier days had a habit of never placing any object on top of the Scripture. They wanted their Bibles accessible, visible, displayed for testimony’s sake, and available for use at any moment. Why not adopt the same habit? Keep a Bible always within an arm’s reach — at work, home, school, and while traveling — so you can always lift up your hand to His commands and meditate on His statutes.
The Bible is not simply a guide for life, a collection of wise sayings and wonderful stories. It is both the meeting place and the instrument that brings you and God together.
