A young man on this forum, Nathan, just posted a blog about bias in the public schools.  If anyone in this forum is "on the front lines," it's our students.  Nathan, we commend you for your efforts to uphold the Word of God in such an openly hostile environment.  Thank you.

 

Psalm 12 is a remarkable Psalm (really, which ones aren't remarkable in some way?).  The psalmist spends the first sections of the psalm commenting on the deception that runs rampant through humanity:

 

"Help, LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.

Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception.

May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue

that says, 'We will triumph with our tongues; we own our lips - who is our master?'"

 

Pretty bleak, no matter how you look at it.  Nathan and other students out there are reminded daily of this.  Yet, as Nathan has remembered, the psalmist also remembers that "the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times."  Keep holding on to that truth, students.  Even as our nation's educators exchange the truth of God for a lie, hold on to the reality that the words of God are flawless.  

 

And, once more, thank you for running the race.

There are times when I can hardly wait to ask King David himself to sing the psalms for me!

That is (like all 150) an incredibly applicable Psalm.  Luther (among other people) put it to music, and it is something to note how often I need to sing it.
