Psalm 88 and Crooked Governments

Today's Reading: Psalm 87-88 and Romans 13

For Psalm 88, with worn and ragged lyrics, here's a near-blues song from Rich Moore.

I've personally never struggled with Romans 11 and being subject to authorities but I had a college roommate who wrestled with the concept. He saw corruption everywhere. He was right -- wherever there are human beings, there's greed and jealousy and malice. This chapter, though, is less about condoning all government actions as it is encouraging a bigger, more God-centered perspective. We can follow government rules that do not violate our core convictions because ultimately the victory is God's.
