‘His delight is in the law of the Lord…’ (Psalm 1:2)
Whenever we think of the law of the Lord we perhaps instinctively think of the 10 commandments given by God to Moses. Yet to do so perhaps reduces the law of the Lord to nothing more than a judicial process, particularly if we don’t look at these commandments properly ie that the first four are to do with how we relate to God and the remaining six, how we relate to others. When we do this we discover what lies at the heart of the law, as Jesus Himself taught His disciples. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind – and love your neighbour as yourself. Can we delight in this?
