Choosing To Like the Thing I Hate

Psalm 52

Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
    The steadfast love of God endures all the day.
  Your tongue plots destruction,
    like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.
  You love evil more than good,
    and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah
  You love all words that devour,
    O deceitful tongue.
  But God will break you down forever;
    he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
    he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
  The righteous shall see and fear,
    and shall laugh at him, saying,
  “See the man who would not make
    God his refuge,
  but trusted in the abundance of his riches
    and sought refuge in his own destruction!”
  But I am like a green olive tree
    in the house of God.
  I trust in the steadfast love of God
    forever and ever.
  I will thank you forever,
    because you have done it.
  I will wait for your name, for it is good,
    in the presence of the godly.

Today’s Truth

In Psalm 52, David gives us two choices. We can either choose to trust in our own desires and pursue evil, or we can trust in the steadfast love of God. Make the right choice, and you will dwell with Him forever and ever.

Discussion Questions
  1. What’s the food you hate the most? Why?
  2. What or who is the source of your trust?
  3. How are you doing specifically at building others up with your words instead of tearing them down?
