Lunchtime Food for Thought: The Psalms, God’s Tools for our Renovation.
At the beginning of our Christian lives, and for a good part of our entire life, our hearts are wild places. Our hearts need the domestication described in Colossians 3:16: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.” St. Paul is saying: “Allow the Word to make a home in your heart.” Say to God: “Make my heart over. If necessary, take me down to the studs. Put a new foundation under me. Remodel me. Add rooms. Turn me into a hotel. In effect, think Extreme Makeover.” God’s tools for this renovation are the Psalms!
