Psalm 119:1-2

How happy are those whose way of life is blameless, who live by the Torah of the Lord! How happy are those who observe his instruction, who seek him wholeheartedly!

- Psalm 119:1-2

Today is the eighth and final day of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). This day is an especially joyous day and is called Simcha Torah – Joy of the Law! I will never forget the excitement I felt as a child on this day as we stood in synagogue as the Torah was reverently paraded through the congregation.

When you think of the Bible do you think of a book of rules that cramp your style or do think of the love that God has shown us by giving us His Word? I would hope that we would all try to look at God’s Word the way the Psalmist did – that by observing the instructions that God has so lovingly given us we would find true happiness. God’s Word should be the foundation for our lives, and the joy of our hearts!
