Sanitizing the Psalms
If David applied for a staff position in our churches and gave us his "diary of worship" to better understand his life, would we hesitate to give him serious consideration? I am sure we would want clarification on his imprecatory psalms as well as many other parts. Is it possible that we have a lot to learn in our churches from this man after God's own heart? Do we sanitize our worship in a way that would never allow someone to express the range of emotions found in the Psalms?
