Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.
“My servant Job . . . there is none like him.” – Job 1:8.
We see in a jeweler’s shop, that, as there are pearls and diamonds and other precious stones, there are files, cutting instruments, and many sharp tools for their polishing; and, while they are in the workhouse, they are continual neighbors to them, and come often under them. The Church is God’s jewel; His workhouse, where His jewels are polishing for His palace and house; and those He especially esteems, and means to make the most resplendent, He hath oftenest His tools upon.
