63 I am a friend to all who fear you,
to all who follow your precepts. Not an exceptional statement at face value, but taken in todays context it can be. We often feel competitive with other denominations/church’s/youth groups to have the most people, the better programs, etc. David’s statement is simple, basic love people who fear God and follow His word. Doesn’t matter the denomination, the church,etc. What does matter is if they accept the basics of the faith, if they don’t, well….then a discussion will ensue.
64 The earth is filled with your love, LORD;
teach me your decrees. Even thought it’s hard to see, God’s love is out there. We, as humans have a tendency of overlooking God’s love in the world and focusing on the negatives of this world. It’s easy to do. Our/my prayer should be like David’s: Teach me your decrees.
