A Verse for Meditation

Torah ScrollSurely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6

Most people would agree that the Lord is good. You might want to look at Psalm 34:8 for another verse that celebrates his goodness. If someone challenged you by saying, “I don’t think that God is so good,” how would you respond?

Mercy is a word with a rich spectrum of meanings. A pastor in my childhood called it “God’s unmerited favor toward ungrateful humnaity.” How would you define it?

This psalm is attributed to David who wrote it thousands of years ago. What do you think he meant when he referred to “all the days of my life?” What do you mean when you say those words?

How is it that anyone might dwell in the house of the Lord forever? Read 1 Corinthians 3:16 and think about what it tells you about Psalm 23:6
