Scripture of the Day - David (Ps. 55:9-11)

I got my day started off on the right track this morning by way of opening God's Word and reading a bit in Psalms. When I read the following passage I immediately thought about the ongoing lawlessness and violence in Ferguson, MO, and broader cultural reaction to it. I suppose the more things change in the human experience the more they don't quite sadly.
"Oh God, confound their conversations for I have seen violence and division in the city. Day and night they go about it in the main thoroughfares: mayhem and grief abide throughout. Wickedness abounds while oppression and deceit are a constant presence in the streets." ~ Psalms 55:9-11 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)
