Monday

Read Psalm 45:1-2 and 6-9

45  Beautiful words fill my mind,
as I compose this song for the king.
Like the pen of a good writer
my tongue is ready with a poem.
2You are the most handsome of men;
you are an eloquent speaker.
God has always blessed you.
6The kingdom that God has given youz
will last for ever and ever.
You rule over your people with justice;
7you love what is right and hate what is evil.
That is why God, your God, has chosen you
and has poured out more happiness on you
than on any other king.
8The perfume of myrrh and aloes is on your clothes;
musicians entertain you in palaces decorated with ivory.
9Among the ladies of your court are daughters of kings,
and on the right of your throne stands the queen,
wearing ornaments of finest gold.

Think

This Psalm is a wedding Psalm that praises the virtues of the groom.  One of the virtues:
"You love what is right and hate what is evil." - 7
Jesus invites us to examine logs in our own eyes before we deal with splinters in others.
What is good, what do you love in your life?
What is evil, what needs to be removed?

Pray

"Examine me, O God, and know my mind; test me, and discover my thoughts.  Find out if there is any evil in me and guide me in the everlasting way."
- Psalm 139:23-24
