“May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, and do not give Jerusalem priority over whatever gives me the most joy.”
Sing holy songs to entertain pagans? How wrong! Let God judge the wicked, while his people put his holy place above all else.
Earthly joys must give way to the cause of Christ. Am I bending my faith to please the world? Is the kingdom of God my top priority?
(For the Christian, today’s “Jerusalém” is to dwell in Christ.)
