(except the Monday after 3rd Sunday)
I am but a foreigner here on earth; I need the guidance of your commands.
Don't hide them from me!
The Bible is a map to guide us. The Psalmist says that he is a "foreigner here on earth," and so he needed guidance. Almost any long trip requires a map or guide. As we travel through life, the Bible should be our road map, pointing out safe routes, obstacles to avoid, and our final destination. We must recognize ourselves as pilgrims, travelers here on earth who need to study God's map to learn the way. If we ignore the map, we will wander aimlessly through life and risk missing our real destination.
As the church receives life application teaching the members in the body of Christ minds are being exercised.
God reaches our hearts through our minds.
"Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is"
(Rom 12:2 NLT).
