Reading: Psalm 17: 1-7, 15 (Click to read text)
Psalm 17 is a plea for justice in the face of false accusations. It was written by David while he was being persecuted by Saul. Though in verse 3 it sounds like he is saying he is sinless, David's claim was an understanding of his relationship with God ~ one of close fellowship and constant repentance and forgiveness. David was continually seeking after God.
What do we seek? We deceive ourselves when we measure our happiness or contentment in life by the measure of our wealth or possessions. The true measurement of happiness or contentment is found in God's love and doing his will. There is eternal value in our relationship with God. That is our true goal! --Ruth Gates, frequent Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
Closing Prayer: Dear God, may I be satisfied with seeing your likeness when I awake and all through my days. Amen.
