“you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation”

Today’s devotion comes from Exodus 31:18.

“When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.”  Exodus 31:18.


“The tablets were God’s work, and the writing was God’s writing engraved on the tablets.”  Exodus 32:16.

“So He declared to you His covenant which He commanded you to perform, that is, the Ten Commandments;  and He wrote them on two tablets of stone.”  Deuteronomy 4:13.

What a gift!

And, God gave us more than His Ten Commandments!

What could be better than the Almighty God preserving His Word for man to keep, treasure, and study?!

“and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;  so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”  2 Timothy 3:15-17.

“7 The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether.
10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned;
In keeping them there is great reward.” Psalm 19:7-11.
