Tonight marks the halfway point in our celebration of Hanukkah.
On Hanukkah, it is customary to eat potato latkes and jelly doughnuts. These treats, which are fried in oil, remind us of the miracle of the jug of oil that burned for eight days.
Psalm 119:105 and Psalm 119:130 describe the light that comes from God’s Word:
Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
When we read God’s word, the Bible, God gives us His light. He allows us to see things that will encourage us, convict us, and motivate us to follow Him more closely. He allows us to see things that we should be doing and things that we should not. Wisdom and understanding are found in the pages of the Bible.
Have a great weekend and take some time in God’s word. It will brighten your day.
