Looking around at all that is going on in the world, it is easy to become discouraged. We are tempted to distract ourselves from our internal agitation by diving in to a tub of ice cream and a good Netflix binge session. There are few things I love more than an evening on my couch with Coolhaus Campfire S’More, my daughter and a comedy series.
While that is a comforting short term solution, in the long run we will face even more problems if we continue to use food and entertainment as a bandaid for our emotions and spiritual questions.
Instead, I would like to suggest using turning to the Psalms.
