May 10 – Psalms 50, 53, 60, & 75

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Psalms 50, 53, 60, & 752 Samuel 8-9 & 1 Chronicles 18. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

In Psalms 50:7-15 the psalmist, speaking as God reminds us that nothing on this earth is out of the dominion of God. Everything is his. While this is not necessarily the intended teaching of this passage, it is a great reminder that nothing on this earth belongs to us; all of it is God’s. Is this fact something you think about often?

Let me challenge you to think of all things in this way. When you do it will change and shape the way you approach life. You will see all as blessings from God. It might cause you to take better care of the possessions which God has entrusted into your care because they are His and not yours. Remembering that all belongs to God and you are just a caretaker might even cause you to be a little more generous as God has been with you. I wonder how that might impact the world we life in.

How do you think this simple mind shift might disturb they way you move through life?
