All the Time, In Every Place

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.  And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

When should we talk about the Lord and the Bible?  How about all the time.  When should we think about the Lord and the Bible?  How about all the time.  These verses pretty much sum up the way we are to treat the Word of the Lord. 

We are supposed to teach them diligently to our children.  We are suppose to talk about them when we 1) are sitting down, 2) are walking or travelling, 3)are laying down, and 4) are standing up.  Sitting, walking, standing and lying down- I think that pretty much takes care of just about all of life.  There is no time when we shouldn’t be thinking about and/or talking about the things of the Lord.  They should be on our hands and right in front of our eyes.  They should be written on the posts of our house and everywhere else. 

There is a reason for all of this thinking about and talking about the things of the Lord- if we don’t keep them constantly in mind, we will forget.  Just like the Israelites, we are a forgetful people.  It is very easy for us to forget the Lord who has been so good to us.  But the cure for that forgetfulness is to be in constant thought about the things of the Lord and to be in constant communication and communion with the Lord.
