This Sunday morning I will begin a class on the Psalms. 13 weeks to cover 150 psalms? So I have tried to pick out a few that kind of represent the whole psalter.
Of course, I had to include Psalm 1. It is one of my favorite passages in Scripture -- maybe because it was one of the earliest passages I committed to memory when I was young. And I love Psalm 63, too. So I have included it. And I have to include the 23rd Psalm.
But my favorite? Psalm 139. I have always liked it. But having been to a concert and heard Michael W. Smith quote it -- it was incredibly moving.
Interesting: If you buy a New Testament, it will probably also include the Psalms. Why? You won't find Leviticus in it. I find it incredible the way the Psalms continue to connect with us.
How about you? What is your favorite Psalm?
