Questions for Reflection – Psalm 100-102

Amazing things happen because of faith. Mountains are moved and dreams come true because the ONE who made the stars more numerous than the grains of sand on the beaches of earth is making the impossible possible.

The mission of this blog is to point out the wonder and amazement found as I journey through each book of the Bible. Questions are asked and answers are sought in the quest to integrate God’s principles or core values into our daily life either at work or at home. 

Let enthusiasm for increasing our faith permeate our soul; capturing the interest of others as we glow and radiate. Let us have an attitude of praise in whatever we do; washing dishes, repairing a machine, selling a product, counseling a client, growing a crop, or raising a family.

A physical workout requires repeated exercises that over time builds muscle and conditions the body whereas our spiritual body requires repeated thoughts about our love of God. The exercise equipment for Spiritual growth is God’s Word; reading, studying, singing, writing, and sharing God’s Word. Over the next few posts, we will be studying and reflecting upon Psalm 100-102. The reading plan and questions below will be used as a guide.
