Lord, the Lord Almighty, may those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me; God of Israel, may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me.

– Psalm 69:6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The Psalmist is lamenting actions that he knows are wrong, and he is coming to grips with the implications of his deeds. Our conduct doesn’t just affect us—it affects everyone around us. How many people have been disillusioned in their faith by the actions of someone around them? So be aware of what you do, for you can control your choices, but you can’t control the consequences of your choices. This is the beginning of wisdom and the fear of the Lord.
