Psalms Meditation – Aug. 9

“When Brothers Dwell in Unity”

Read Psalm 133

Glistening oil running down Aaron’s beard and refreshing dew from the cool northern mountains are two pictures (the first of how it looks, the second of how it feels) of a comunity in which men and women find themselves forgiven by God and open in love to each other.

PRAYER: Father, break down every barrier that my sin builds between me and others: barriers of envy, of pride, of inadequacy, of scorn. Then let me see and feel the pleasures of sharing the inner delights of forgiveness and grace with the others whom you are gathering into your family. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

by Eugene Peterson, “A Year with the Psalms” p. 170
