Thought for the week: Realism is one of the strongest evidences of the inspiration of the Bible. In Psalm 22, David uses powerful metaphors to describe his enemies. The enemies are like strong bulls, roaring lions, a pack of dogs, and wild oxen. No wonder David felt so weak when separated from God. Without the Lord, he didn’t stand a chance. Neither do we. Only those who cry out to the Holy One are rescued, helped, aided, heard, fed, and blessed to worship. It’s some psalm!
