Wisdom from the Psalms 8/21

Psalms 105:5
Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.

The old pastor was only a few months out of the church, and it seemed like everyone took glee in recalling his faults and shortcomings. The problems of the church were all attributed in some form to the inadequacies of the pastor just past. It was the rare individual who stopped to recall all the wonderful qualities the former pastor had possessed. In his time he had served with love and affection, and the glories of his love far exceeded any shortcomings he displayed.
Do we spend much time glorying in all that the Lord has done for us, or do we lament over what has yet to occur? So often we can find ourselves blaming God when things don't go right. The Hebrew people did it. The kings did it. Even early Christians did it. We should be careful to learn from their mistakes and fill our hearts and mouths with the praise that God surely deserves.
Prayer: Remove from my mouth any curse, Lord. Fill me with praise and thanksgiving for all that I have and all that I am. Amen.
