Taste and See

Psalm 34 is a psalm of blessing: David is recounting the benefits and joys of serving the Lord, blessing Yahweh and calling on his hearers to do the same. David’s worship becomes a shared meal of blessing: he has tasted the goodness of God, and wants others to come and magnify the Lord with him, and so through his song he shares sweet morsels of salvation, deliverance, provision, protection, and redemption. As we come together to worship today, we should do likewise: God has spread before us a table of prayer, song, word, and sacrament, calling us all to taste and see that the Lord is good, and to spread our delight to one another with mouths full of praise.
