This coming Friday, the plan is, I’ll be doing another Facebook Live interview with Natalie Klejwa of Emotional Abuse Survivor (new name Flying Free). Because we’re going to be talking about “bitterness,” I was naturally led to think about the wicked.
So here’s a funny story. It’s actually true, too.
Around 25 or 30 years ago when I was reading through the Psalms, I sighed and said to myself, “There sure are a lot of Psalms about the wicked. But I don’t personally know any wicked people, so these psalms seem like they don’t apply to me.”
Yes, it’s true. That’s what I said.
Then I went on to think, “But people in other times and in other places who suffer persecution have had to deal with wicked people, and I know these psalms must be a comfort to them.”
And then, believe it or not, my thoughts went one step further. I thought to myself, “Maybe someday I’ll know some wicked people, and then I’ll be thankful for these psalms.”
This is true. I really did say these words.
