Psalm 12:7, 8   
You, Lord, will guard us; 
you will protect us from this generation forever. 
The wicked prowl all around, 
and what is worthless is exalted by the human race. (CSB)

You, Lord, will keep the needy safe 
and will protect us forever from the wicked, 
who freely strut about 
when what is vile is honored by the human race. (NIV)

God is near when lies are common and what is vile is honored. He guards us and protects us. This is good news. 

The darker the days, the brighter God’s light shines. The more confused humanity’s thought processes become, the wiser God’s truth appears. 

God’s good news touches every realm, every area of life and living. It shows the better way. It leads along the way. It provides whatever is necessary on the way. It is the Better Way.

King David’s double bottom line is ours as well. There are many people who are rotten to the core. They are blackhearted sinners. God is good, and everything he offers and makes possible is good, good, good. 

Really, really good is the reality that many blackhearted sinners see themselves for who they are and what they are in the light of God’s glory and grace. They experience his cleansing. They follow his redirection of their steps. They lay aside their vile and worthless ways. 

God guards the good and pursues the wicked. He wants everyone to experience his grace, mercy, kindness, and compassion. 

How do we rid the world of what is vile and wicked? By extending God’s goodness and grace here and there and in every place. 

What an opportunity for a Saturday! Carry God’s light and love wherever you go. Let the goodness and grace of God show. 

I will live in the beauty of God’s goodness and grace. 

Our Father, we live in a darkening world. Use us as light-bearers against the night. May the whole world see how good life can be. May those captive to lies and all that is vile be drawn to your gracious ways and liberating truth. Amen.
