When the Foundations Are Destroyed

When I think about 2020, my mind starts to swirl. Just think of all the new words in our vocabulary, words we didn’t know or use in 2019. Social distancing, new normal, flattening the curve, 6 feet apart, face masks, covid-19, coronavirus, epidemiologist, CDC, aerosol, reopening. Think of the news headlines just in 2020. Australian fires, African locust, worldwide coronavirus pandemic, economic collapse, murder hornets, racial injustice, riots and violence, autonomous zones. Truth is stranger than fiction. When I think about 2020 the phrase that keeps coming to my mind is, “When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” So I decided to turn to that Psalm this morning.
