Scripture Reading(s)

Psalm 146:5-10

146:5 Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God,

146:6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever;

146:7 who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free;

146:8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.

146:9 The LORD watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

146:10 The LORD will reign forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD!


Justin-Holmes1.jpgThroughout the Old Testament and in Jesus’ own words we see that God is very serious about our behavior and attitudes. Psalm 146 reminds us that God “lifts up those who are bowed down” and “he upholds the orphan and the widow”. God wants His children to be humble and righteous. Among the people of the earth it will be the meek that inherit it.

Jesus says,

“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Luke 14:11)

Let us always remember that when we are humble and moldable God can use and shape us. Otherwise He will have do to us as He did with Israel and break the clay pots and put them back together again.
