The key verse for me from Psalm 107 was verse 43. It's here we're told that the wise will pay attention to the things set out previously in this psalm and thus see and consider the steadfast love of the Lord. Sometimes it's easy just to read and not really consider all that's right there before us. Maybe we're distracted when we read or we're rushing or we're approaching our reading like a task rather than an opportunity to connect with God. Whatever the case, verse 43 is a good reminder that Psalm 107 (actually all Scripture) is rich with information and we need to take it in, consider it and then do something with it in our day-to-day life.
