"Honesty & Lament" Psalm 58:1-11 (Psalms: Then Sings My Soul)

This week we will look at some of the psalms that often leave us scratching our heads and wishing they weren't in the Bible. With graphic words, strong emotions, and pleas for violent vengeance, Psalm 58 and other Lament songs are honest expressions from deep within. But when David asks God to "kick in the teeth" of his enemies or make them "like a stillborn", we often turn the page and in embarrassment look away. Why are those songs in the Bible? And how do we use them? As we work through a few laments, we will discover an invitation to the type of honesty that few actually know. And, instead of looking away, we may actually find them instructive for great freedom in our souls.
