Psalm 119 is a lengthy paean to God’s law, which the author goes so far as to claim to love, as strange as that may sound to contemporary ears. Indeed the notion of loving a law is very far from most people’s thoughts. Why do we ourselves not love this law? William G. Witt, Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity School for Ministry, offers his thoughts in this wonderful homily: I Love Your Law: A Sermon about law and grace. Definitely worth reading.
