What does God think about bullies?

The liturgical reading for this week has included Psalm 52:0-9 for three days.

It’s so fitting.

In this week’s news, there have been numerous reports of megachurch pastors finally facing accountability for a wide range of moral failures - including, in regards to Robert Morris, the egregious crime of child sexual abuse.

My takeaways from Psalm 52:

  1. God has always opposed “heroes” who love evil and lie.
  2. Bullies have taken refuge in their destructive behavior for millennia.
  3. Despite their evil, we can still flourish as we trust God’s love.

What hope do you find in Psalm 52?
