The Lord is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made. Psalm 145:9

Psalm 145 is known as a hymn of praise written by David. It is known as an acrostic poem because each verse in order begins with a letter of the 22-letter Hebrew alphabet, except for the letter “nun” because the word “fallen” begins with the letter “nun.” This is probably lost on most of us since we are not Hebrew poets, but it demonstrates the level of thought that went into the Psalms.

Verse nine stresses God’s love for us, all of which is the central theme of our Christian faith.

I doubt Luther had Wikipedia to help him figure it all out, but he seems to have hit the nail on the heard. Our faith as Christians is summarized in this one Psalm.

Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank you for your love and compassion to us, even though we are not worthy and have done nothing to deserve it. Amen.
