Day 36, Psalm 36

This psalm starts out talking about people who hear evil whispers and take them in, turning them into action. They do not revere God so they don’t reject evil or even discern it as evil. They are living without a God-filter or the tools He gives us to discern and turn from evil.

As Christians, we are equipped with God’s love and discernment. We can use God’s love as a compass, choosing our direction at every decision point we face. What would Jesus do? We can sort out our thoughts, tossing out the evil thoughts and focusing on the thoughts that are true and right. We may not make all the right choices, but the choices we do get right keep moving us in God’s direction. We have hope as we continue to seek His will for our lives.

God, you are the source of all life, and because of your light, we see the light. Ps 36:9
