TOPIC: The Message to the Wicked

OPENING PRAYER: As I read your word O Lord, grant me an insight and grace to do your will in Jesus name.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Psalm 50:16-23

QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION
• Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• Q 5: Is there any warning for me to heed?

Scripture Union Daily Guide 18th August 2023 MESSAGE:

Asaph continues with indictment for unethical practices (vs.16-21) and instructions for correction (vs.22-23). Those who fail to worship God out of sincerity of heart often end up in hypocrisy and are faced with God’s reproof. Reflect on the specific and practical things pointed out in the lives of those who are unfaithful in their relationship with God as listed in vs.16-20. Are you guilty of any of these? Is God’s silence a sign of approval or otherwise of your lifestyle (v.21)?

God responded to these evils (vs.21-22). The people assumed that God’s silence is a sign of approval of their lifestyle. How wrong! God’s silence is not forever, and it is for only one purpose (see 2 Peter 3:9). What does this teach us about God’s nature and what warning for us?

Finally, God states clearly what honours Him and the kind of person He shows His salvation (v.23). God truly values a thankful heart.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
