Psalm 58:1-2 (JDV)

Psalm 58:11 Are you really saying the right things, you gods? Do you judge people fairly?
Psalm 58:2 No, you practice injustice in your hearts; with your hands you weigh out violence in the land.

Before David asks for God to overcome the plots of the wicked, he steps back and speaks brashly to the gods who are controlling them. These gods are not people, they are demons who use people like pawns. Our God is God and there is no other. Most of us live in societies who promote “inclusiveness.” We must certainly respect and befriend people who are different from us. But the Christian has to draw the line at being religiously inclusive.

Unbeliever, your god is plotting unfairness, injustice and violence. You should be rebuking and forsakingĀ  him or her, and running to Jesus, because only he saves.

Lord, draw our friends and relatives away from their false gods and to you.
