A lamp for my feet

(Thomas Watson, "Body of Divinity")

"Teach me Your ways, O Lord, that I may
 live according to Your truth!" Psalm 86:11


Let us lead Scripture lives. Oh that the Bible might
be seen printed in our lives! Obedience is an excellent
way of commenting upon the Bible. Let the Word be
the sun-dial by which you set your life. What are we
the better for having the Scripture, if we do not direct
all our speech and actions according to it? What is a
carpenter the better for his rule about him, if he sticks
it at his back, and never makes use of it for measuring
and squaring his work? So, what are we the better for
the rule of the Word, if we do not make use of it, and
regulate our lives by it? How many swerve and deviate
from the rule!

"Your Word is a lamp for my feet
and a light for my
path."
Psalm 119:105. It is not only a light to our eyes
to mend our sightóbut to our feet to mend our walk.
Oh, let us lead Bible lives!
