Be Thoughtful

thinker

Psalm 119:59, “When I think on my ways, I turn my feet to your testimonies.”

W. S. Plumer writes, “What a reproach it is to mankind that it can be said of but one here and there, He is thoughtful on religious subjects. We do nothing towards our salvation till we begin to think. Calvin: ‘The commencement of a godly life consists in men awaking from their lethargy, examining their ways, and, at last, wisely considering what it is to regulate their conduct properly.’ ‘Because the wicked man considereth and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live and not die,’ Ezekiel 18:28. The prodigal did not come to his Father until he came to himself, Luke 15:17. How foolish it is to spend much time in thoughts on the ways of others, when we are ready to perish through the error of our own ways” (Psalms, 1048).
