Synopsis Psalms 14:1-16:11 8/25/2021
The foolish deny existence of God. In fact, this is the definition of foolishness. As a result, those who deny God live lives that are loathsome and intrinsically corrupt.
Conversely, those who live upright lives because of their love for God will thrive. According to King David, such people will always be stable and unshaken.
For this reason, David proclaims that God is the greatest good. And with this knowledge, he was confident that his life would be filled with gladness and blessing.
Denying the existence of God is like pretending someone I don’t like doesn’t actually exist.
But shunning is a special form of idiocy. I shun to solve a relationship I have no way of dealing with. Still, nothing is ever really solved by denying an obvious, but inconvenient, reality.
“Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.” Matt 10:32-33
