Psalm 1 is both a challenge and a blessing. It blesses because it promises stability and fruitfulness in our lives. Psalm 1 also challenges me personally because often I want to be recognized or sit in the seat of the scoffers among us rather than find satisfaction in God's Word. This is quite a challenge for a young lawyer like me who can often delight more in what he knows about the law rather than just delighting the the law of the Lord. Although most Christians I know are perhaps too dismissive about our legal system, I try to see it as a profession within which I can serve God. Keeping my priorities straight is the problem.

The readings in Kings really get to me. It is difficult to get the "big picture" of this book. I remember studying Kings and Chronicles in a great Bible study a few years ago. What sticks out to me is God's righteous judgment, power, and mercy toward those who believe in him. I also believe we are called to be "idol smashers" of sorts in today's world; however, how we go about doing this is the real difficulty because of appearing too self-righteous. I look forward to gettting involved in the readings for the second half. God Bless
