The hidden treasures of the hundred and 19 so we are going on a treasure hunt and the gold we are seeking in this treasure hunt is actually the phrase of God like to join us. Taking this deep dive mining with David in the hundred and 19. I am a stranger in the earth.

Hide not thy commandments for me. Well, there is a clue here. Me too much of the life that I have lived because that word stranger in Hebrew is quite significant. As you may know the story of the Jews is quite often that you know they have been considered strangers, and so when we look at that word in Hebrew stranger. You obviously. Maybe not obviously but I call the verses in the gimbal section. It's going to start with a letter demo oh this one is God our anybody remember that you, in the case of Moses his son right that his name was because he was born in the strange land.

His name was Gershon, which again you hear that Jesus out in that same that's in the the gimbal and the race that's in this word that means stranger the first time you see that in Genesis is when Abraham is getting told that his people are going to be strangers in the country that's not there is for 400 years and there to be persecuted so it's not like the strange and I don't know about you that we live in a strange world like I do not I have no understanding of our economy. I have no understanding of our government.

I certainly have no understanding of our election process cycle. I feel like I'm a stranger and that leads to a lot of difficulty in life, and so to tell the story the way I look at it is when I was young my father works viewed motivation and so we were transferred every two years, like a military brat so we move back and forth across the country from California to Illinois and all these different places. Actually one time when I was in third grade at the end of third grade we moved from California to Naperville Illinois which is right outside of Chicago. Actually San Jose, California to Naperville, Illinois, and so clearly as I came into this new school in fourth grade as somebody from California walking into a place around Chicago. It was completely different.

It was completely foreign to me and my biggest problem wasn't California. We wore blue jeans and pullover shirts and I'd move from Colorado to California where we also wore blue jeans and pullover shirt. But in the Chicago area in the Naperville area.

Those boys wore dress slacks in Oxford shorts and so immediately I stuck out like a sore thumb and oh my goodness.

Did I get picked on all my goodness, not even the teachers didn't even like me find my fourth grade teacher told my mother I know that Robbie will ever ever even get into high school.

You may want to put them in a special school conceit. He really can't learn and so the concept embraces when your people's favorite when you're different. You're not necessarily gonna be a lot of people favorite and this is when King David is saying is he's a stranger so maybe been a stranger at some point time you moved to a new town, you didn't know which way to go, what to do. You need a map, and inside this what King David is saying here to us in that gimbal section is Laura. I need a map in order to make my way in this very strange world and he's asking very specific that you know that he's given this map because he said don't hide your mitzvah. Don't hide your commandments which, again, this is the word mitzvah.

Quite often there their good deeds but there are things like to tithe or to not glean the edge of your field. Those tickler type of commandments are going to help him navigate in the strange world that were right and an end to an extent this particular verse is sort of a hand into the hole journey of the hundred 19 Psalm or maybe the whole journey of life because the way it works is were starting out of the place and were trying to get to heaven.

Just like the Pilgrim's progress in a world like you know John Bunyan described his character Christian or as we do in Fitchburg. I theater value. We are trying to find our way to the celestial city and it would be really helpful to have a map or one of those directions. One of those streets to take clearly. King David understands is these mitzvah's is these commandments that are in God's word that describes specifically, things to do with our ties and offerings and Emmett really to the extent the way we love one another.

Sexual don't be surprised if you're like me and if you like us stick out like a sore thumb because you're so much different because as you start this journey with God. You are going to be on a different road and you are an honest account someone like a song from that actually it may seem like it's a difficult thing but it ends up being a beautiful thing because if you're on the right road. You can help other people get on the right road with the wrong road. Unfortunately, you tend to lead other people towards the wrong road so here's the thing. Lord, I'm a stranger on the earth. Hide not your command. Hide not your mitzvah from us. So here in the gimbal section where clearly that you can see this traveler, this idea of the sojourner and the people that are strangers in the land. It seems to be a way that God is going to prove us and in progress for the celestial city of Lord there was a map don't hide
