Many wise men have written wise sayings for people to follow.  The wisest of men was King Solomon, because God gave him the wisdom to rule his people; that is what he asked for.  Then, because of his wise prayer and requests God gave him what he did not ask for; and it was many …

Day Forty Six – City of Peace

The city of Jerusalem, near the East shore of the Mediterranean Sea, is a city which is the source of much conflict; yet its name means, “city of peace” or “teaching peace”.  Yet Jerusalem has no peace.  It is a source of much conflict because there are three religions which want to claim it as …

Day Forty Four – Our Creator

When it comes to the Psalms we find much to sing and say about our Creator.  Some of the intellect of our day believe that all that is just came to pass by chance, or cosmic explosion alone; but where, O where did the materials come from that “caused the explosion”? The Scripture reading today …

Day Thirty Eight – Hymn On Waiting

Our Scripture reading today is Psalms 15 - 28. Waiting is not a pleasant thing to do; especially in today’s fast moving world. We wait in traffic.  We wait for that job interview and job that is going to put us in a higher income bracket, and maybe on “easy street”.  We wait at the …

Day Thirty Seven – The Hymn Book of the Bible

First, let me clear some things up. When we speak of the “Book of Psalms” it is used in the plural. If we speak of one Psalm it is “Psalm”. Such as Psalm 1, Psalm 50, you get the idea. Psalms has no chapters, they are referred to as Psalms. There are 150 Psalms in …
