Reading the second Palm of the Psalter and newspaper and internet news headlines these days, it is apparent that not much has changed in the world in the last 3,000 years. The nations plot war against each other and, most of all; the rulers of the nations still think they run the world.
And God laughs (Psalm 2:4)
The writer of this psalm, a ruler of a nation himself, knows that he is not God. Wisdom teaches him that even being anointed by God does not make him the supreme ruler. You do not have to be president of a nation to learn the lesson of this psalm. Humility is a necessary human condition because, if you do not humble yourself, you will be humbled by the circumstances God orchestrates around you.
God will always get the last laugh if you think you are the god of your world. – Ron Friesen
