Glad to see you all here today. We're going to do a short series on some Psalms, the next three weeks. This is going to build a pathway toward our time as we prepare ourselves for Advent. This morning, we're going to be looking at the very first of the Psalms, Psalm 1. Before we look at the Word of God, I'm going to invite us to bow briefly in prayer. Father, thanks so much for the privilege we have to worship you and to gather together. Lord, today, we just want to surrender our lives to you. Lord, you are a gracious and kind and compassionate God who loves us and is calling us into a deeper walk with you. I pray now, as we look into your word, that you would use this time and this text to encourage and teach us. We pray all of this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
As many of you may know, the largest city in the U.S. is New York which has about 8 ½ million people. But what you may not know is that there are approximately 10 million cats and 12 million dogs who also live there. When your pet dies in New York City, you can’t just go out and bury it in the backyard since most of the city is concrete, so the city authorities passed an ordinance that they’ll come by, pick up your deceased pet, and dispose of it for $75. Well, a few years back, a lady came up with an enterprising idea to make some money. She advertised that she would dispose of your pet for only $35 dollars. What she’d do is buy a $2 suitcase at the local Salvation Army thrift store. She'd then go and pick up the dead animal and put it in the suitcase and then hop on the subway. Now, if you’ve ever been on the subway in New York City you know it’s really, really crowded.....and theft is a huge problem. So the lady would set down the suitcase, intentionally look away, and wait for someone to steal it, and then she’d cry out….‘Wait…stop…thief!’ The authorities finally caught on to her scheme, but what do you charge her with? And what about the thieves? How did they react when they finally opened the stolen suitcase only to discover that it contained something they hadn’t planned on?...
