9/27/19: Ephesians 5:1-33; Psalm 69:19-36; Proverbs 24:7
We know from scripture that David was a man “after God’s own heart.” I think today’s reading from Psalm 69 demonstrates David’s insight into the nature of the Lord:
30 I will praise God’s name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving.
31 This will please the Lord more than an ox,
more than a bull with its horns and hooves.
David was not denying the commands for sacrifice at that time in Israel’s history. But he did recognize that the Lord desires our heart and our love more than what was laid before him on the alter.
