Focus Our Attention

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Psalm 103:1

For the next few days I’d like to focus our attention on the Lord.

We all know that King David blew it on many occasions. Of course he paid dearly for his sins, but even though he was a king, he sinned and erred against God. And we also know that David sinned big. What makes David’s sins more significant is that we know all about them thousands of years later. What would it be like if many of our darkest sins were revealed to future generations. I suspect we would be less judgmental of David’s grossest sins. It’s something to think about.

But we also can see the repentant heart of David in a Psalm like this. You can almost hear him crying as he writes.

We need to do this periodically. We need to just prostrate ourselves before the Lord and let it all hang out. I think if we did that regularly, we’d have a greater appreciation of God’s mercy and a full understanding of our need for Him.
