Passage: Psalms 34:8-22
Thom Jones preached on Taste and See That the Lord is Good based on scriptures Psalm 34:1-10 and Psalm 34:11-22
Psalms 34: This psalm from David contains both thanksgiving to God and instruction for all of us.
First, David praises God for the experience which he and others had realized of His goodness.
Secondly, he encourages all good people to trust in God and to seek Him.
The third thing he does is give good counsel to us all, as unto children, to take heed of sin, and to show awareness of our duty both to God and to our fellow man (and woman).
Finally, David enforces this good counsel by showing God’s favour to the righteous and His displeasure against the wicked, in which he sets before us good and evil: the blessing and the curse.
As we sing the psalm, we are to give glory to God, but we are also ordered to teach and admonish ourselves and one another. It's a joyful lesson, in a humbling sort of way.
