chronological day 127 :)

Lots of Psalms today!  These are David’s psalms that Bible scholars were not able to date or connect to an event in David’s life.  Here we go: please read Psalms 12, 13, 4, 15, 16, 17 (skip 18), 19, 20 and 21.  Do you love Psalms?  Here we have so many great examples of how honest we can be in our prayer and praise – God wants to be our go-to and best friend!

127

I love Psalm 15, and the MSG translation is great!

“God, who gets invited to dinner at your place? How do we get on your guest list?

‘Walk straight, act right, tell the truth. Don’t hurt your friend, don’t blame your neighbor; despise the despicable. Keep your word even when it costs you, make an honest living, never take a bribe. You’ll never get blacklisted if you live like this’ “

Sometimes we make life and the pursuit of godliness more complicated than it actually is – David reminds us that clean living (though not always easy) is always simple.

    Some powerful words read today! I try my best to read then put the Bible down giving me a chance to let the words/story build in me. Sometimes I have plenty to say and then there are times I just want to listen and relive those moments of the Bible in my head. The psalms are a great example. To me if you didn’t have several books in the Bible, reading the Psalms are like cliff notes, you get a taste of the feeling, the characters and the main point leaving you thirsty for the complete story. What a rollercoaster ride they are. Feelings of joy, celebration then heart break and sorrow. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s reading.
