Your words were found, and I did eat them; and your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by your name…
"Thy words were found, and I did eat them." In the absence of his father, a little boy attended the Sabbath School of a Dutch Reformed minister. On the father's return he went upstairs and finding his son reading the Word of God, he asked him, "What book are you reading?" He replied, "The Bible." "Where did you get it?" "In yonder Sabbath School." He then took the Bible from him and committed it to the flame, saying, "If you ever go to the Sunday School again, I'll give you such a thrashing as you have never had." Having ascertained that the Bible was burned, his son said to him, "Father, you have burned my Bible; but you cannot burn out of me those chapters I have committed to memory from the Gospel of John."
