That About Sums It Up

Although the Bible is full of tons of stories of what to do/not to do in addition to proverbs, commandments, and encouragement, some statements tend to sum up God’s message to His people. One of those is “love the Lord your God with all your heart…and love your neighbor as yourself”. Love God; love people.

Another verse, if we pray it and God answers, will correct about any behavioral issue we are having. That verse is Psalm 19:14 – “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.” It covers two things – What is in my heart and what comes out through my mouth. If the meditations of my heart are right, what I say and do will be right.

What sums up your life right now? Is there a verse that represents your life, or does your life contradict much of Scripture? I can assure you that the way you act sums it all up.

  1. My verse that I always go to is Jeremiah 29:11:
    “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

  2. A few years ago the Scripture for the kids I was teaching was …What is the greatest commandment? We started in Matthew, then I spent the next 6 months or so finding how many times Love the Lord your God with all your heart…and love your neighbor as you love yourself. In these two are all the Law and the prophets fulfilled… Psalm 19:14 has been on the front of our church bulletin twice in less than two years; both times I cut it out and placed it on my bathroom mirror. These Scriptures are ones I’ve been meditating on over the past 2-3 years. I pray they are doing their work in me!

  3. I’d say that Galatians 6:9 sums up my life, for it is the perfect depiction on how Christians should not grow weary or restless in their walk with Christ, for they will reap of a harvest if they persevere!
