Daily devotional: Eagerness for God's Word

Scripture
Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.
Psalm 119:36-37 NLT

Observation
God's Word has given me such life abundantly that I would not trade the Bible for anything else. It is certainly more valuable than riches, so it is worthwhile to realize that and pray to be more eager for God's laws especially than for riches. We can ask God for redirection from worthless things to things that really matter.

Application
Pray these verses and thank God for the riches He has opened up to me through His Word.

Prayer
Lord, thank you so much for giving us Your Word, revealed through people You inspired to write. Even though You chose many authors over many years, it is amazing to see the consistency and themes throughout, as well as the timelessness of Your principles. Please turn my eyes from worthless things, especially from the love of money, and instead please grow my eagerness for Your laws, and continue to give me abundant life through Your Word. Help me to understand it and see its living power as I apply it to my life. I love you, Lord!
