Reading: Psalm 19 (Click to read text)
Ever read a Bible passage and go, "Huh?" That's what happened to me today when I read this Psalm. I was particularly struck by verse 2 which says, "...night to night declares knowledge." And I thought, "What does that mean?"
And then I thought of all the reading I've done in my lifetime at night. I like to read before bedtime and have done that since I was very young. I can remember cuddling up to a book under my covers when I was in elementary and middle school. I've been told that when you study for a test, you'll remember the information more if you read it right before you sleep. Once, I even tried to put a book under my pillow, hoping the knowledge would come into my mind by osmosis!
So, I guess it is appropriate that David reminds us that we get knowledge in the night. There are lots of good lessons to learn after the sun goes down. What have you learned in the dark? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
