Chapter-a-Day Psalm 12

Ad God’s words are pure words, Pure silver words refined seven times. Psalm 12:6 (TM)

What I found interesting in today’s chapter was the contrast David heard between the words of the people around him and God’s words.

Here in Iowa it’s three weeks until caucus. You can’t spit without hitting a presidential candidate. We were having dinner last Friday night with our small group and Hillary walked in with her entourage. The television is a steady stream of political ads. Promises, threats, spin, and fear-mongering in never ending messages draped in red, white and blue.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy we have a democratic process. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Nevertheless, politicians are not know for the "purity" of their words. I get done watching the news and I feel like I need to take a shower.

God’s words, by contrast, are eternal. They are like fresh spring water constantly bubbling up with renewed, life-giving meaning.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 12”

  1. The same verses struck me today, Tom.
    6-8 God’s words are pure words,
    Pure silver words refined seven times
    In the fires of his word-kiln,
    Pure on earth as well as in heaven.
    How can anyone not believe that this powerful Word applies today?
