So I quickly grabbed TDP. Wow. Psalm 111 went so well! Not just in speaking of studying and praising and remembering the Lord's deeds. But also consider the reference to the work of His hands (v 7). Ordinarily we might take this as Creation. But when I read it 2 minutes before the meeting, my mind went immediately to the hands that were nailed to the Cross, that held fish to show He was not a ghost, that were shown to remove Thomas' disbelief, and hands that were raised in blessing upon the disciples when Christ ascended. A question entered my head: "Is this stretching the meaning of the work of His hands?" And yet, consider how redemption is the theme of the next sentence.
What do you think?
