day 4 (trek 2): put a psalm in my heart

Today we read Psalm 12-14 and continue to select small portions of our reading to draw in our Bible to aid our memory of the psalm. As for myself, all three of the elements I’ve selected to sketch deal in some way with the mouth.

Morning: Psalm 12. A tongue.

“May the Lord cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that makes great boasts, those who say, ‘With our tongue we will prevail, our lips are with us; who is master over us?'” (12.3-4)

Mid-day: Psalm 13. Singing (musical notes).

“I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.” (13.6)

Night: Psalm 14. A piece of bread.

“Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon the Lord?” (14.4)

Let us dedicate our mouth to the Lord today, uttering only what praises and thanks God and seeks to build others up, not tear them down or work them harm.
