In Brief

I counted once and discovered that Abraham Lincolnís Gettysburg Address contains fewer than 300 words. This means, among other things, that words donít have to be many to be memorable.

Thatís one reason I like Psalm 117. Brevity is its hallmark. The psalmist said all he had to say in 30 words (actually just 17 words in the Hebrew text).

Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples! For His merciful kindness [love] is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord [faithfulness] endures forever. Praise the Lord!

Ah, thatís the good news! Contained in this hallelujah psalm is a message to all nations of the world that Godís ďmerciful kindnessĒóHis covenant loveóis ďgreat toward usĒ (v.2).

Think about what Godís love means. God loved us before we were born; He will love us after we die. Not one thing can separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus our Lord (Rom. 8:39). His heart is an inexhaustible and irrepressible fountain of love!

As I read this brief psalm of praise to God, I can think of no greater encouragement for our journey than its reminder of Godís merciful kindness. Praise the Lord!

Let us celebrate together,
Lift our voice in one accord,
Singing of Godís grace and mercy
And the goodness of the Lord. óSper

What we know about God should lead us
to give joyful praise to Him.
