An Applicable Psalm

I noticed this Psalm today, #52, and for some reason it seemed quite apropos, given the big event Sunday night. As you read it, keep in mind that even though bin Laden said he was doing things in the name of his god, he was alienated from the one true God by his own choice. Also remember that he was awash in worldly wealth that helped him carry out his evil deeds. See if you don’t think this applies.

Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.

Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, O worker of deceit. You love evil more than good, falsehood more than speaking what is right.

You love all words that devour, O deceitful tongue. But God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and tear you away from your tent, and uproot you from the land of the living.

The righteous will see and fear, and will laugh at him, saying,”Behold the man who would not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his riches and was strong in his evil desire.”
