Psalm 19 – Stop And Smell The Roses – Then Love Their Creator

Stop and smell the roses. Then love their creator. We usually hear “stop and smell the roses”. But there’s so much more to life than “just” doing that. So much we miss out on if that’s “all” we do.

Here’s the long version of stop and smell the roses:

  1. Go to where the roses are, generally
  2. See the roses
  3. Get right up to the roses
  4. Get a good look at the roses
  5. Smell the roses
  6. Think about the beauty and aroma of the roses
  7. Decide what, if anything, to do as a result of steps 1-6

With that thought, let’s read Psalm 19.

In other words, the glory of God is evident. But what do we do about it? Do we even notice?

And if we do notice, then what? Do we just say “huh”, and move on? Maybe even worship the roses, or whatever thing we happen to notice? Or do we realize God is the creator of everything and worship Him?

Conclusion – Psalm 19 – Stop and smell the roses – then love their creator

If we stop, smell the roses, realize God is their creator and ours, then choose to worship and love Him, we’ll eventually reach the point where we also share David’s closing thought for this Psalm.

Ps 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
