To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 116–118 on August 20, In the year of our Lord 2016
By Don Ruhl
Have you painted people with a broad brush? Have you declared that all politicians are corrupt? Have you concluded that a certain color of people are evil? The psalmist made a generalization about people, and then realized that he was wrong, but observe why he made his original statement,
I said in my haste,
“All men are liars.”
In haste, he judged all men as liars. He had not given enough time to think about it. He had too small a sampling. He had an experience or perhaps several experiences that led him to make a conclusion about all people.
The only one who can make such a declaration is the One who sits in the heavens and sees all that we do.
