PSALM 106



"Praise the Lord!
Oh give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Who can speak of the mighty deeds of the Lord,
Or can show forth all His praise?
How blessed are those who keep justice,
Who practice righteousness at all times!"
(verses 1-3)


The symbol of justice is a blindfolded woman with scales.
God is not blindfolded. He cannot be swayed.  He is just.



God is good.
His lovingkindness is without end.
Justice is essential.
Righteousness doesn't take a vacation.



Do you, like me, forget to praise the Lord and to give thanks?


Our response is also found by keeping justice and practicing righteousness.
Does this mean we get a nice "Get Out of the Political Arena Free Card?"
No, I don't think so. 


Our heart should beat for the same things that move the heart of God.
Our feet should go in the direction where God would go.
We should be recognizable as Christians by being godly.



So do something for justice sake.
Do something that reflects God's lovingkindness.
Do something that reveals that God is good.
Praise Him.
Thank Him.
