Forgiven! (Ps 32)
We need more happiness in the world today, wouldn’t you say? This Psalm points us to happiness. “Blessed, i.e. happy, is the one…” it begins. These words invite us into the Psalm, like a welcoming host to a weary guest. “Come in and stay for a while! Let me take your heavy, dusty coat and have it cleaned for you. Take off your shoes and sit by the fire, or the cool fan, and relax!” That’s how this Psalm opens. Oh how we need to find a place where you really can cast your burdens aside and breathe deeply fresh air of embrace.
