Insights on Today's Reading
Psalm 73 - If you have ever been envious of the "rich and infamous," that is, the people who seem to get away with bad behavior and get richer doing so, then this Psalm is for you. The writer expresses his frustration watching bad people get away with bad behavior and they never seem to suffer for it. As you read please note when the writer's viewpoint changed. (Hint: you'll find it in verse 17). The Psalmist learned that consequences to bad behavior will surely come. Also, note the Psalmist's wonderful view of God in the last four verses.
Psalm 77 - The word "remember" is used several times in this Psalm. It reminds us to look back and see what God has done, especially for the people of Israel coming out of Egypt. Do you remember God's work in your past too?
Psalm 78 - This Psalm is a overview of Israel's history, focusing on Israel's failure and God's faithfulness. It's rather long, compared to other Psalms, but it's worth taking the time to learn some of the valuable lessons Israel should have learned.
