Happy Wednesday! If you watched the video I linked yesterday on the Bible Project website you will know that as we read the Psalms we will read a lot of laments, especially in the beginning. This is what we have today in Psalm 6. However, I think this is a good thing, because all these laments teach us that it is okay to cry out to God. They teach us the we don’t always have to be happy and pleasant before God. The prayers of the Psalms are prayers were we can lay it all before God.
Read: Psalms 4, 5, and 6
Questions to Consider:
1. Have there been times in your life when you have been angry at someone for something they have done to you? Write about this in your journal.
2. Has there been a time in your life when someone has been angry at your for something you have done to them? Write about this in your journal.
3. Is forgiveness to be given or an apology to be offered either of these situations?
Activity for the Day: Can you make the commitment to try and not just read the Psalms each day, but read them as if they are prayer?
