I have spent a lot of time reading the Psalms lately and many things have struck me about these writings. I have loved seeing the difference between a Psalm of devotion, a Psalm of love, and a Psalm of lament.
As I have read through the book of Psalms, I have found myself reading them differently than before. In fact, I have been reading through them out loud. In doing this, I found myself not being able to read them without looking for the energy and passion found within them. So many of these Psalms are written with passion and desire and we often read them as if they are devoid of feeling.
I have heard and seen many people read the scriptures with no energy, passion, or feeling. They read it as if it is dead and gone. It is a finite book that has no meaning.
I wonder how many of us do that each and every day?
