Many times when I feel cluttered in my mind I will grab the Bible and read the Psalm for the day. Today is the 11th, so I read Psalm 11. It is also the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Look what I read…
1 In the Lord I take refuge; how can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain,
2 for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
3 if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven; his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.
5 The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
6 Let him rain coals on the wicked; fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.
Psalm 11:1-7 (ESV)
May our hearts be kept from violence and vengeance today. Shalom.
