ESV radio spot: Ps. 119:9-11

I am enjoying and being spiritually enriched listening to the ESV radio spots which I blogged about in my preceding post. These spots are short, up-tempo (including contemporary background music), yet drive home spirituals truths which everyone needs to hear.

I just listened to the radio spot for Ps. 119:9-11:
How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Interesting, the reading and meditation, with application to herself, were done by Joy Williams, who is, obviously, not a "young man." Wayne Grudem would, correctly, in my opinion, state that this verse was written about a young man. He would also say, as he often does, that there is a spiritual principle in this verse which can be applied to others, including Christian women, like Joy Williams.

The spots are fast-paced for today's fast-paced people. Within just a few second the radio reader transitions from reading, literally, about a young man to application to her own life as a woman. Well done, Joy! Well done, ESV team. May God bless your use of beautiful voices reading the radio spots clearly within a context of contemporary technology and music to bring the truths of God's Word, including application of gender-specific verses to other gender and age groups.

I am saving each of the ESV spots to my hard drive and look forward to listening to each one.
