Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 26 (ESV)

Vindicate me, O Lord,
for I have walked in my integrity,
and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
2 Prove me, O Lord, and try me;
test my heart and my mind.
3 For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
and I walk in your faithfulness.
4 I do not sit with men of falsehood,
nor do I consort with hypocrites.

  1. If there is anyone who could live up to this Psalm it is Jesus. Yet I wonder if it would be the occupation of His heart when He was being a friend of tax collectors and sinners. I wonder how much the new covenant changes how this Psalm would operate in our lives. If we have been blameless (which doesn’t mean perfect necessarily, but just being clear of having a charge brought against you), and unwavering in our trust in God, if we walk continually in God’s truth, and abhor the assembly of evil doers, that is noteworthy and we should be affirmed in the choices we have made. All those things should be the goal of our lives…it is of mine…is it of yours?

    But how important to remember humility when we attain such things (or when we start thinking we have). How important to remember mercy and love for enemies when we know and follow the truth for life defined by the sovereign God (which is a challenging knowledge to have in a world of sin…it’s easy to get proud and judgmental when we have that). Truth and grace allowed Jesus to be contagious in the way He lived and both caused Him to be welcomed to sinners houses…

    Important things to remember (at least for me) in light of this Psalm….
