Psalm 25 & Matthew 21:23-27
The chief priests and elders of the people did not know the ways of the Lord. Their lives of indulgence, materialism and the individualism of their day did not allow them the humility to be led and taught God’s ways. Am I like Jewish priests and elders, so involved with the ideals and goods of this world that I, too, “do not know” the ways of God and the truth of Jesus Christ? Or am I open and humble enough to be led by God and to learn his design for human life? Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.
He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. (Psalm 25)
