Sunday Psalm (Psalm 5)

Hey. I know I haven’t posted in a while. Two weeks ago was midterm week and school was INSANE. Then, last week, I was in Florida with the Upland Community Church high school youth group. So, here is our Sunday Psalm for this week, and I hope maybe I can post later this week. However, I have two sermons to prepare for the next week and a half on top of all of my other school work, so no promises. Enjoy the Psalm!

Psalm 5

[5:1] Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning.

[2] Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.

[3] O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

[4] For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.

[5] The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

[6] You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

[7] But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.

[8] Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.

[9] For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue.

[10] Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you.

[11] But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.

[12] For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

Taylor people need to read this.

Hello there!  Many of you know I regularly read the blog of a man by the name of Jon Acuff.  He writes a blog, and has released a book, called Stuff Christians Like.  He writes satire dealing with many aspects of Christianity.  He is a great guy who writes both hilarious and convicting blog posts.  I ran across this one today as I was reading some of his posts as I have been busy lately.  Taylor people need to read this.  It is a post poking fun at the concept of “Intentional Community.”

Taylor folks, you’ll probably “lol” for real.

Other folks, you may just smile.

Have a good day.
