Daily Scripture

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14)

Daily Reflection

What a beautiful thought; what beautiful words to try and live our lives by. That the things that we think about deep in our hearts would be acceptable to God; that the words that we speak would be acceptable to God.

Knowing that “God is love”: if our thoughts and our words can be acceptable to him, then our thoughts and the things we say to one another are rooted in love. If the things we think, do, and say are rooted in love, then the world would be a much better place.

But it is a “big ask”, isn’t it, that every thought and word we speak, every day, would be acceptable to God? It seems an impossible task. Today will be a better day if you can just remember this verse, and try and live by it. (Don’t worry about tomorrow yet, just try it today!)
