Discussion for Psalms 78

  • Bryan McCloud
    This chapter teaches me that know matter how much God does for us; we are still ungrateful. We are just like the Isarealites who murmur and complain against God after all he has done for us. Like Proverbs 27:30 states, "hell and destruction are never full, and so the eyes of men are never satisfied."
  • Anne
    Thank God for the Holy Spirit who lives within us and who leads and guides us into all truth and brings to our remembrance the goodness of God's grace and mercy.
  • Annie
    I thank God that when I get up in the morning my life is about him and not someone else. I thank God that when I go to bed at night my life is about him and not someone else. I am fortunate to have a relationship with God that commands my attention and not someone else. I am fortunate to possess the maturity where God is my SOURCE and not someone else. God is my all not someone else. Change you.

    God, of course,is All Power and merciful beyond human description. We have not and do not fully acknowledge this at every moment or day. We give in to our fleshly feelings and desires too easiy with out enough disciplne of ourselves. Praise God for His perfect intergrity, Love, and mercy. We are nothing without Him. He left the belief of Him up to each individual to choose. Choose life and live.
  • BS ANAND
    The chapter explains God s love on His people inspite of their dissatisfaction,disobedience and ungratefulness. But at the same time we understand His angry towards ungrateful. It is unfortunate to see the same tendency even today among the people.
  • Jean Boyce
    God is a good God but he is also a jealous and just God.we his children have not change we are still the same today as the Israelites did when he brought them out of Egypt. God please help us to trust you and keep your word in our hearts that we will not sin against you
