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.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life. – Psalm 23:6.
They say in England if a man walks he must be poor, if he sometimes calls a cab he is better off, if one footman rides behind him he is rich, but if two are on the back of his carriage he must have a great inheritance. God has no poor children; they all have a great inheritance; two footmen are always behind, “Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” Or, goodness and mercy may be called God’s watchdogs, following in the rear.
