I realize that we can’t all get together for such a study every day, but we all could spend some time every day studying the Psalms on our own.I am not talking about reading it, although that is fine, I’m talking about really studying each of the Psalms. My purpose for this article is to provoke thought that just might lead to someone discovering what a priceless treasure we have in this blessed book. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Who knows, even though you might not desire to teach it, studying the Psalms daily just might make someone’s top ten list. It sure made mine. Think about it!
Talk about a sure-fire conversation starter this is it–just ask “What would you like to do?”. Try that in a room full of people and you would get a wide variety of answers. So, what would you like to do? Go fishing? Go shopping? Take a vacation? What comes to your mind?
Personally, I could mention a lot of things and I’m not sure what order I would put them in, but something just came to my mind that I had never really thought about before. I would love to spend 1-1/2 to 2 hours every morning teaching the Psalms. Yep, I know that seems strange to some of you, but you asked (in a round about way) and that’s my answer.
The older I get the more I appreciate and enjoy the Psalms. I once spent five years teaching the entire book of Psalms on Wednesday nights. I would love to study this marvellous book in an unhurried manner every morning. It is so rich and wonderful that it would provide much needed help for all of us. Few people read it as they should and fewer still actually study it. They don’t know what they’re missing.
