"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
The old fashioned lamp referred to here is hand-held, for personal use in the night. What a lovely picture of the Scriptures. It is absolutely essential to grasp the tenets and principles of the Word of God for oneself. To trim the wick and replenish the oil is a daily necessity- and daily reading and study and meditation is essential to survive in this dark world. Are you reading the Bible, daily looking for that light and guidance?
Oh, Word divine! Oh, Book sublime!
Oh, Wisdom so transcending!
We look to Thee, we cling to Thee
For guiding light unending.
S. F. Logsdon
