  • Meditation on Psalm 50:1-20
    Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving

    Psalm 50 is written in a homily style; it is prophetic instruction for the people. Psalm’s setting is believed to be a covenant renewing ceremony in Synagogues. Psalm presents God enthroned as judge giving his verdict on people’s disregard for the covenant, forgetting God. Heaven and earth are summoned as witnesses to hear God’s
    judgment, signifying God as ruler of all creation. God’s judgment is a call to decision, for people to listen to God’s word and judge their own lives, repent and return to God. Psalm’s main concern is about people’s right relationship with God. The covenant was God’s free offer of his love and people professed their commitment to the covenant on Mount Sinai through Moses [Exodus 6:7, “I will take you for my people, and I will be
    your God and you shall know that I am the Lord your God…”]. Psalm addresses the failure of the people to follow the commandments of God and remain in a relationship of love with God. God never withdraws his love or annul the covenant; though people break up their covenantal relationship with God, God’s mercy and forgiveness await them to return to God through change of hearts and confession of their love for God!
