Study Guide – Psalm 131

Psalm131
1 My heart is not proud, Lord,
    my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted myself,
    I am like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child I am content.

3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord
    both now and forevermore. NIV

 

As you go through this psalm, practice it. Go through each line and exercise what it says. As you do this, examine deeply what each line means for you today.


::::: Equipping Challenge :::::

This psalm of David was used to prepare the people of Israel to worship together. What could you do to encourage the people of your church community to prepare themselves before they gather together to worship the Lord each week? What difference would this make in your worshipping community?
