The Law of the Lord is Sweeter than Honey
The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is pure,
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
11 By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can discern their own errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
How many of you have learned about the scientific method? The scientific method is a process by which doctors and scientists use to study the natural world. There are several steps to the scientific method, but they boil down to the three things we are discussing today. First they observe. What do they see? What is happening? Second, they interpret. Why did this happen? How did this happen? What does it all mean? Finally, they apply. They ask how their observation and interpretation can be used.
The scientific method has been used to teach us how our world works, how to cure diseases, and how to do many other incredible things. Imagine what you could do by applying these three simple steps to your Bible study. God wants us to take what we learn from the Bible and apply it to our lives. He wants us to live out our faith, living the way the Bible teaches us, loving others the way Jesus loved others, and sharing what we know about God in love.
The more we apply God’s word to our life, the better we will become at truly living a godly life!
Make an effort to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker, who doesn’t need to be ashamed but is one who interprets the message of truth correctly. 2 Timothy 2:15
Give each of the kids an inexpensive notebook they can decorate and take home to use in their alone time with God. Remind them to observe, interpret, and apply!
