Psalm 119; 1 Corinthians 4

From today's Bible reading:

Psalm 119:

Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope.

your promise gives me life.

I remember your name in the night, O LORD, and keep your law.

At midnight I rise to praise you, because of your righteous rules.

I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.

The earth, O LORD, is full of your steadfast love; teach me your statutes!

Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word.

It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes.

The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.

Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice, because I have hoped in your word.

My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word.

In your steadfast love give me life, that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth.

Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.

I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.

Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

1 Corinthians 4:

This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.

It is the Lord who judges me.

the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart.

learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another.

To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless, and we labor, working

the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
