A Devotional Thought on Psalm 14
“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” I can’t help but think of humanism in our modern culture, the propensity for the “educated” to deny God. Sometimes we wish things could be like the good old days – but clearly this same attitude has persisted in mankind since the fall (i.e., What good old days?). David’s criticism is cutting and powerful. What’s somewhat unexpected for me, though, are verses 2-3: The LORD considers all of mankind, every human being, to be this fool. I am that fool by nature; given my own way, I will always choose to deny God. In a few verses, this psalm has put my own natural sinful state in perspective. Praise God I trust in the foolishness of God!
