Today's reading: Psalm 10:1-18
David is petitioning God in Psalm 10, imploring Him not to delay in taking action against evil people and to rectify trouble-filled situations brought about by them. As part of his plea, David describes the wickedness and sinful acts and thinking of those who aren't following God. The common thread running throughout this description is the attitude, and perhaps even the belief, that "there is no God" (vs. 4) and that they can do as they please because God doesn't see what they're doing (vs. 11). It's a pretty accurate and sobering depiction of what can happen to anyone (even us) when we choose to push God aside and elevate ourselves to the position of being our own god.
What does this psalm reveal about the dangers of choosing to put ourselves and our desires above God? Tami
