Reading along with us in Psalms? Here’s today’s reading:

  1. 7 “See the man who would not make
    God his refuge,
    but trusted in the abundance of his riches
    and sought refuge in his own destruction!”
    8 But I am like a green olive tree
    in the house of God.

    9 I will thank you forever,
    because you have done it.
    I will wait for your name, for it is good,
    In the presence of the godly.

  2. What privilege is ours to follow God even as the world searches for its own way and boasts in what appears to them to be better. We not only get to know Him for who he is but also reap the benefits of all He provides. Two things should result: praise to His name and telling others, believers and unbelievers.
