Question(s) for Reflection
• What does the passage teach about God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit? • Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
Do you know that you are God’s masterpiece? Read vs.13-16 again and carefully observe why as God’s image, we are unique. Also see the painstaking effort God took to make each of us. It is amazing, how God took his time to “knit” each one of us together right in our mother’s womb (v.13).
What does this tell you about who you are and God’s knowledge of you? The fact that we are made by God’s very hand, in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26), means we are perfectly made. Don’t allow anyone to look down on you because of your gender or race (Genesis 1:27). You are a perfect creation of God (v.14). He knows you very well (vs.15-16a). He is fully aware of every moment of your life (v.16b).
What can we learn from the Psalmist in vs.17-18? It is good to always reflect on the things God has done in our lives and express our appreciation to Him. Consider the attitude of the psalmist towards the wicked and why (see vs.19-22 and compare James 4:4).
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Meditate on vs.23-24 and turn them into your prayer for today. • Ask for the spirit of grace and excellence in all you do.
