Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed [thereto] according to thy word.
I really enjoyed this verse when we talked about it last Sunday. I meant to post about this a little earlier, but such is life.
So, a young man definitely needs to clean his way up. That's believable. So how does the great 119th Psalm recommend he do it? 119 is the Psalm most completely dedicated to the law of God, to His statutes, so what does it recommend.
It recommends that young man take heed to "his way."
I don't know why, but I loved that. It doesn't recommend that he pour over the law every waking second. It recommends he love and learn that law, but take heed to his own way.
I know I'm fighting a rare enemy here, but some of us spent too much time on theology and not enough figuring out our way through life. It's cool when God's inspired word does not make the mistakes of young men.
