Psalm 14

The Psalmist speaks to those who say "God is gone" about how their lack of faith leads to a lack of justice and relationship. Here it is in the Message translation:

v.4--Don't they know anything, all these imposters?
Don't they know they can't get away with this--
Treating people like a fast-food meal
over which they're too busy to pray?

v.5-6 Night is coming for them, and nightmares,
for God takes the side of victims.
Do you think you can mess with the dreams of the poor?
You can't, for God
makes their dreams come true.

v.7 Is there anyone around to save Israel?
Yes. God is around; GOD turns life around.

Here's to a day of living like God is around.
