Psalm 53:4 – Do prayer and service define you?

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 3:1‐5:30, 2 Corinthians 11:1‐15, Psalm 53:1‐6, Proverbs 22:28‐29

Context: David is talking about the fool who says in his heart there is no God.  He elaborates and states that God looks down from heaven and sees that there is no one who does good (Paul quotes this Psalm in Romans 3).

Psalm 53:4 Have those who work evil no knowledge,
 who eat up my people as they eat bread,
 and do not call upon God?


  • Those who work evil eat up people – use others and instead of serving them
  • Those who work evil do not call upon God – independent of God instead of dependent on God

Application:  I don’t want anyone to be able to accuse me of these two traits.  As I ran this morning, I talked with God about my desire to see prayer and sacrificial service define my life.

What do you need to do to prioritize prayer and service?
