Life according to Plumb (oct. 12, 09)

"the bible: KNOW IT IN YOUR HEAD, STOW IT IN YOUR HEART, SHOW IT IN YOUR LIFE, SOW IT IN THE WORLD." :)



Charlie Riggs has been called "the man behind Billy Graham." For nearly 40 years, Riggs was the director of counseling and follow-up for Mr. Graham's evangelistic meetings. In his counselor training classes, Charlie thought thousands of people the basic principles of how to live for Christ and share their faith with others.


At Charlie's 90th birthday celebration, many tributes mentioned his life-long practice of memorizing Scripture. His goal was not merely to know the bible, but to know Christ and live by Word.

Charlie followed Paslm 119:9-11. "How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to your Word... your Word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You." He likened the scriptures to "plumb bobs" for his heart. Like the weight that holds a builder's plumb line straight and true, these divine principles never change, no matter what the circumstances. He sought to measure his own thoughts, feelings, and behavior by God's Word, not the other way around.

Charlie Riggs' life was quiet and steady behind the scenes. His example challenges us today to hide God's Word in our hearts and let it guide our lives. Charlie demonstrated what it means to live according to plumb.

and turn us from our sin,
if we will read it and obey
God's principles within. -Sper
