So, anyone who has been in a Bible Study I've lead, or to a worship service I've preached/planned, or just generally hung out with me knows that I love to ask questions. Today's Psalms perplexed me. Maybe you can help me.
Here are my questions.
1) Psalm 15:1-2, 4b,
"Who can live in Your tent, Lord? Who can dwell on your holy mountain?
The person who lives with integrity, does what is right, and speaks the truth sincerely.....
someone who keeps their promise even when it hurts..."
So, that means NO ONE can live in God's tent? Huh?
2) Psalm 16:5
"You Lord are my possession, my cup"
Huh? How can God be MY possession? Does that mean I can own God? What is the Psalmist trying to say?
3) Psalm 16:7
"I will bless the Lord who advises me" So, I won't bless the Lord who doesn't advise me?
Thanks for help with my questions! Do you have any? Maybe we can help each other!
(PS. I really really really love Psalm 16. It might be one of my new favorite "go tos!" Which has been your favorite so far?)
