Today's Lectionary Text
Psalm 16: A Miktam of David
Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
As for the holy ones in the land, they are the noble ones
Those who choose another god multiply their sorrows;
The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
I bless the Lord, who gives me counsel;
Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices;
You show me the path of life.
In Psalm 16, David contrasts those who honor God with those who dishonor Him. Those who acknowledge their need for God, as David does, see Him as their security and source of all the good in their lives. Those who don't are faced with idolatry and evil.
Is God the "fount of every blessing," to quote the old hymn in your life? Why or why not?
