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

Psalm 53 (ESV)

To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
    there is none who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,

    all have fallen

    Makes me think of God’s grace, love and interest in me all the more

    me (us) yet not because of our merit, yet because of His compassion

  2. Although it is tempting to read this Psalm and think of all those who say there is no God, the atheists and agnostics, etc, (and certainly with all the evidence that exists, it is true that they are fools), but I think of the subtle ways we as believers (myself included) say there is no God. What are the things we do that effectively set Him aside: in our fear and disobedience, in our pride and independence, in the ways we don’t grow or serve or witness? Isn’t our lack of faith greater in a sense since we know Him. I also think as God handles these people mentioned here so should we, maybe in not expecting as much from them, or being compassionate towards them, or certainly praying for and looking for open doors to show them God and share Him with them. Yes let’s live in and show the salvation that has been offered us!
