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.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
