A humble dream
What is your dream? Some people dream about world peace or revolution. Mr. Luther King Jr. had a dream of an equal society. Here, the psalmist has a humble dream. He simply wants to have a happy family dinner table where they can pray together and love each other. May this dream be allowed by God!
“Happy is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways. You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.”
A city-full of happy families
What is a healthy nation? It is simply a nation where families are happy and healthy. When many families experience trauma like the Ferry accident in Korea the whole nation is sinking down. When the psalmist dreamt about a happy home, he actually dreamt of a healthy nation also.
“Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord. The Lord bless you from Zion. May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. May you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!”
