SONG: “How Firm a Foundation” (author unknown)
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 119:105
DISCUSSION: In this verse, the psalmist describes the Word of God as a “lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” What do the words lamp and light indicate about the Word of God? What do the words feet & path imply? What would it look like to try and walk and follow a path in total darkness? Discuss how neglecting the Word of God in our own lives would make life as difficult (and dangerous) as walking around in total darkness.
