God forgive us if we allow any syllable of His Holy Word to become a platitude to proclaim rather than a precept to be lived out.
It bothers me that so many scripture verses today have become cliches and platitudes in Christendom; cute “sayings” that are quoted but not revered; verses worn on clothing, coffee mugs or hanging on walls, but not lived out in the lives of God’s people.
God's Word says we are to write His Words on our hearts. "Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul ..." (Deut. 11:18).
As followers of Jesus, we are instructed in the Bible to "Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do" (Joshua 1:8). -Lisa Hannan
