[March 27]
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night. Joshua 1:8
MEDITATION on the divine law day and night is not, of course, to be understood literally—that we should do nothing else day or night than think upon the Scriptures. We are to understand the Lord to mean that we should ever have in mind, in connection with all of life's affairs, the thought that we are his, and that he is our guide and director in all things, and that the slightest matter that would pertain to our lives and our interests, day or night, should be undertaken with due consideration of the Lord's will respecting the same. Z'07-284 R4062:4(Hymn 307)
