Message of the Day: On Being Fair and Generous!
“A good man deals graciously and lends;
He will guide his affairs with discretion.” (Psalm 112:5, NKJV)
Psalm 111 and 112 are songs of praise. Equal in length and similar in form, these two psalms can be read as a pair. The former considers the greatness of God, the latter the character of his godly people.
God’s wonderful works, both in creation and in history, are a cause for praise by all his worshipping people. In his sovereign power he took the agriculturally productive land of Canaan from its heathen inhabitants and gave it to the Israelite people according to the covenant he had made with them. His desire is that they rule themselves according to his just law. He is the mighty and holy covenant-redeemer of his people, and they should fear him, honor him, obey him and praise him. (Psalm 111:1-10)
When people respond to God in such a way, God blesses them with a respected, upright and prosperous line of descendants. God looks after those who are fair in their treatment of others and generous with their money. Their lives will be enriched with a sense of security and confidence, so that they fear nothing. The satisfaction that comes from such lives is in sharp contrast to the envy and hopelessness of the wicked. (Psalm 112:1-10)
