"Weaning and Limitations - Part 1" Psalm 131:1-3 (Psalms: Then Sings My Soul)

As we continue in the Psalms this fall, we will be spending time in Psalm 131:1-3 for the next two weeks. Out of all 150 psalms in the book, this is one that the Lord has used the most to challenge and calm my soul during my summer sabbatical. Utilizing the picture of a weaned child with his mother, David offers a portrait of the two faces of pride: arrogant ambition and demanding dependence, both of which cut us off from an easy yoke and light burden. This week we will explore the gift of our limitations that challenge our ambitions before looking at the process of weaning next week.
