Most of you can recite much of the 23rd psalm if not all of it. It is ascribed to David. It is an expression of confidence in God’s protection. The Lord is compared to a shepherd and we are the sheep of his pasture. There are many other psalms that are lesser known from the depth of the writer’s soul just as the 23rd.
Psalms are prayers that spring from the souls of believers. In the Bible, we have 150 psalms. There is also the Book of Lamentations which is made up of psalms as well. But the 150 psalms are like the top hit parade of psalms for the Israelites of the Old Testament and for us even today.
We will be studying the psalms in a six-week course on Sundays starting January 6 at 10:30 a.m. While we will be categorizing them to help make them a little easier to study, know that each one has its own personality and soul. It will help us to develop a deeper devotional and meditative life.
Psalm Study will meet January 6, 27; February 3, 10, 17, 24.
