Delighting In God's Word

"Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts." (Jeremiah 15:16)

"O how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day." (Psalm 119:97)

As best we know there are currently 6,912 known languages in the world today.(1) The Bible has been translated into 2,287 languages.(2) Of that 883 are portions of the Bible. 1,012 are Testaments, and 392 are complete Bibles. If the statistics are true, that means that only 5.6% of the world's languages have a complete translation of the Bible. What, pray tell, are you doing with this great and providential opportunity? Are you delighting in God's Word?
