Psalm 24-26 make up our reading today.
This time through this psalm the words “earth” and “world” capture my eyes as I read Psalm 24 and so that’s what I’ll make a simple sketch of the earth/world this morning:
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein …” (24.1)
What shall I draw as I read Psalm 25 at mid-day today? A picture of a path.
“Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. … Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.” (25.4,8-9)
This evening a pair of footprints is the illustration I’ll make in my Bible as I read Psalm 26.
“Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity, and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. … I wash my hands in innocence and go around your altar, O Lord, proclaiming thanksgiving aloud, and telling all your wondrous deeds. … as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me. My foot stands on level ground; in the great assembly I will bless the Lord.” (26.1,6-7,11-12)
