“Better Than Silver”

Key Verse

““The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.” Psalm 119:72

Text — Psalm 119:65-72


Silver and gold simply refer to money. Money is the resource used as a means of buying goods and services. It is a means of exchange or payment for what we received. With money, we pay our school fees, buy books, and do other things that are necessary for our wellbeing.
However, our key verse says that the Word of God is better, much more important and useful than thousands of gold and silver. The reasons are: (i) Money cannot buy salvation of your soul. It is only the blood of Jesus Who was crucified on the cross of Calvary that can purchase salvation for us. (ii) Money cannot buy supernatural healing, health and deliverance. (iii) Money cannot deliver from evil. (iv) Money cannot buy spiritual power and the gifts of the Holy Ghost. The gifts of God are free. (v) Money cannot take you to heaven, but the Word of God abiding in your heart will do it.

For these reasons, it is better to pursue and possess the word of God than to pursue money. Therefore, prefer to seek the word of God more than pursuing money and the things of the world, set your affection on things above.
