Genuine zeal

Regardless of the personal or national crises biblical poets encountered, they often expressed steadfast trust in God: "I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord." Ps. 104:33, 34. Such words, denoting a genuinely zealous attitude toward God and His goodness, are a recurring theme in the psalms.

Webster defines "zeal" as "eagerness and ardent interest in pursuit of something: fervor." How we need this intense interest in learning to understand God and our relationship to Him!
