Re:Verse reading–Psalm 2, Psalm 110 (day three)
“The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.”  Someone has said, “The man who poses the greater menace to others is not the one whose god differs from yours, but the one who fears no god at all.”  As the centurion told Jesus, “I myself am a man under authority…”  The most discerning among us know that each of us answers to someone, and that everyone will give an account for decisions and actions.  Every action we carry out bears the clear markings of our loyalties—to God or to self.  Every action we carry out proclaims whether we believe we are the master or the mastered.  This is why wisdom—and with it life everlasting—begins with the fear of the Lord.
