Subtitle: Thanksgiving 2010
Speaker: John Bronson
Broadcaster: Evangelical Free Church of Oroville
Event: Sunday Service
Bible: Psalm 145
Length: 41 min.
Overview: To make the Thanksgiving Feast even richer please turn with me to Psalm 145. That is what we are going to be looking at today. Let David the Psalmist of Israel instruct us. This psalm - though you cannot tell this in the English - along with Psalm 34, right after the Psalm we read as a call to worship this morning, and all of Psalm 119, the longest psalm in the whole Bible, these are each one an acrostic. In other words, every single either verse or stanza begins progressively with another of the Hebrew alphabet, all the way through. That is worth thinking about. David did not dash off the top of his head all these thoughts. Rather, in each of the three cases that I have mentioned, and certainly in others as well, what we have given to us here is the fruit of very deliberate time and effort spent carefully pulling together thoughts and remembrances and writing them down in a specific manner in order that it would convey the meaning to any who would read thereafter. So we might ask ourselves this question- When I think about giving thanks, am I thoughtful the way David was thoughtful- Should or could I write a psalm, a poem or a song of praise- Just keep that in your mind as we go on and look at what David has to say.
