By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:9-11Psalm 119 is all about the wonders of God’s word. It gives the many advantages of reading, knowing, obeying and memorizing the decrees, commands and promises of the Bible.But you have to pick it up first.God’s word does no good unopened. A person has to make a concerted effort to regularly consume scriptures. Excuses and temptations will always pull the person away.But, once the person opens the Bible and sees the beauty and love it offers, there’s no turning that person away ever again.Director’s Tip:Makes Chris as conflicted as possible. The more frantic, the funnier. Have Chris contort and fidget all over the chair. The more expressive the actor the better.
