No One

10 My whole being will exclaim,
“Who is like you, Lord?
You rescue the poor from those too strong for them,
the poor and needy from those who rob them.” Psalm 35:9

King David asks the question that should be asked often, “Who is like you, Lord?” Of course we all know the answer: no one. So then why should we be asking it then?

I find that we compare things and people and place all the time. It’s our frame of reference. For instance, if I were to tell you I lifted 17 pounds of nothing yesterday, you’d be puzzled. You understand basically how heavy 17 pounds is, and you know what nothing is, but you do not have a frame of reference for those two together. It’s very abstract.

So, when we ask “Who is like you, Lord?” the answer is difficult because there has not been anything like the Lord from all of eternity. People may think and act they ware like him, but there really is nothing remotely close in comparison.
