The Greatest Pain in the World? (Psalm 58)
Mar 01, 2021 Season 7 Episode 58
David Murray

What’s the worst pain in the world? Physical pain (toothache, childbirth, kidney stones)? Emotional pains (bereavement, depression, fear)? Relational pains (betrayal, unfaithfulness, abandonment). All of these are great pains, but they are not the greatest pain.

 I believe the greatest pain in the world is the pain of injustice: seeing the wicked get off, seeing the righteous condemned, especially when we’re one of the victims. I’ve been one of these victims and no doubt many of you have too. We’ve seen wicked people defended, protected, and promoted; and we’ve seen good people accused, condemned, and punished. That pain goes really deep and really long.

 How do we deal with these wounds? How do we heal them? Psalm 58 offers some truth stitches to sew them together.
