The Daily Nosh – Psalms 30:8-10
To you, O Lord I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper!” (ESV) Psalms 30:8-10
Nosh: David appeals to God for help by reasoning that he cannot be a source of praise if he dies or is overcome by his enemies. David shares with us a key to success in his relationship with God and life in general. Praise is a powerful divine motivator.
