‘Memorize. Meditate. Obey.’

Proverb 7:1-3

“My son, keep my words and store up my commands within you. Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.”

The Pharisees tried to literally tie mini scrolls to their hands since they could not write on their hearts, but they had missed the point.  Writing godly counsel and God’s Word on the tablet of your heart is to bind them by remembering them, cherishing them, discussing them and following them. 

Deuteronomy 6:6

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.”

Psalm 37:31

“The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip”

Psalm 40:8

“I delight to do Your will, my God; Your Law is written on my heart.”

Psalm 119:11

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”  

Writing God’s Word and godly counsel on my heart means memorizing it so that I may meditate on it so that I will honor God with my obedience.
