Today I put a bunch of verses having to do with healthy eating/guarding against gluttony, all over my kitchen. On my cupboards, fridge, etc.
I also put verses that I’m trying to commit to memory on every floor (in the bathroom, on my bedroom mirror, in the living room and family room.
It’s so amazing! I had such a fruitful, peaceful, satisfying day!
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall
be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Matthew Henry’s Commentary Notes:
Here are means for maintaining and keeping up religion in our hearts and houses.
1. Meditation. God’s words must be laid up in our hearts, that our thoughts may be daily employed about them.
2. The education of children. Often repeat these things to them. Be careful and exact in teaching thy children. Teach these truths to all who are any way under thy care. Diligently teach them!
3. Pious discourse. Thou shalt talk of these things with due reverence and seriousness, for the benefit not only of thy children, but of thy servants, thy friends and companions. Take all occasions to discourse with those about thee, not of matters of doubtful disputation, but of the plain truths and laws of God, and the things that belong to our peace.
4. Frequent reading of the word. God appointed them to write sentences of the law upon their walls, and in scrolls of parchment to be worn about their wrists. This seems to have been binding in the letter of it to the Jews, as it is to us in the intent of it; which is, that we should by all means make the word of God familiar to us; that we may have it ready to use upon all occasions, (1 Peter 3:15) to restrain us from sin, and direct us in duty.
So dear sisters in Christ, if we are to live and breath and shine Jesus every singe day, we need to be bathing ourselves in His Holy and Precious Word! Then, and only then, will it not be a duty to speak of His name, but it will seep from our very pores!
