Last week I was reading the Psalms (all of em) as part of my ongoing Bible study, and this certainly helpd me today during our worship service.
Usually when we hear, "Blessed Are the Meek" we think of the beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12) as we heard today in church, but we should not forget that Jesus is also quoting from the Psalms.
"But the meek shall inherit the earth,Did Jesus use the commonly known psalms in his teachings as a way to connect with the people of His day?
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." Psalm 37:11
How can His words still connect us to the Psalter when most church goers are exposed to a small, expurgated version of a limited number of Psalms once a week?
