As we journey through the life of David in our Pastor's Sermon series, I want to encourage you to incorporate the Psalms into your daily, devotional reading. You can catch up on sermons at our website here.
"The Psalms provide the most reliable, theological, pastoral and liturgical resource in the biblical tradition." (Walter Brueggemann, "Spirituality of the Psalms") Essentially in this collection we have the highest of praise for God along with some of the depths of humanity. Prayers of joy and pain. Adoration of God and deep questioning of God. Wow.
To me, Psalm 63:3 is one of the most important moments in all of scripture:
"The steadfast love of the Lord is better than life."
If you would be willing I would love to know your favorite Psalm, or passage from the Psalms. Reply directly to this email or let me know in other formats. I would be honored to hear what speaks to you.
God, as we go this week, help us to live simple, Christ like lives and serve our neighbors.
