Wise To Do Good
Today's reading: Psalm 37:1-40
As a former litigating attorney, I enjoy the structure of Psalm 37 and the way it reads. David puts before us an essay of sorts (in poem form) that logically lays out the benefits of following and serving God (doing good) contrasted with examples and warnings about what happens and what to expect when we choose not to live for God.
"Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous" (vs. 16-17).
If someone asked you why they should follow God and do good, how would you respond based on this Psalm? When have you experienced or observed what David describes? How might you use this Psalm to share God’s love and message of salvation? Tami
