Am I Better Than You?
Posted by Dennis Arve Wilkinson
Psalm 106… Save us O Lord our God!
The people of God had forgotten God, they had rebelled against him, they refused to listen to him, committed idolatry, they were envious and jealous, they committed murder they embraced evil practices and grumbled, they let their desires run wild. The result was their own misery and destruction. In many regards the people of God today — Christians — are just as broken. It’s the cry at the end of the Psalm that distinguishes the Christian from the non-Christian. The Christian cries out “God help me” Under no circumstances does a Christian feel like he is better than someone else or somehow more worthy of blessing. A Christian is simply a broken person who is crying to God for help.
