“We’re All in This Together” (with apologies to High School Musical)
Psalm 106: 4, 5: “Remember me, O Lord, in Your favor toward Your people; visit me with Your salvation, that I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that I may glory with Your inheritance.” How many prayers like that in verse four are prayed solely for the benefit of self? But this psalmist knew the bigger picture: God’s chosen ones, His nation, His inheritance. In other words, His people. In the Kingdom of God it’s all about communion and the greater good.
