Preparing with Hope June 25, 2023
disciple: someone who follows Jesus and leads others to do the same.
Now, look ahead.
Now, let's get ready to study this week's verse. Read Psalm 14:1.
- Do you know who is speaking here?
- Do you know who they are speaking to?
- Do you know what is happening?
- How does this apply to you?
Before you move on, take a second and read Psalm 14:1 again, but in a different translation.
- Does it change any of your answers from above?
- Is there anything that you have questions about?
- Invite a friend to read it with you and ask them what they think God is trying to say in this verse.
Let's get ready for Sunday!

Ps 14:1 NIV The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
Alot of the Psalms were written by David to the Jewish people to sing in church. This one was written for the chief musician. A person who says there isn't a God is a fool. They don't do anything good, infact they do evil.
AMPLIFIED "The [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right."
The fool is not using his brain only his heart. He is not looking at his surroundings to see that God does exist. He is limiting his beliefs to what his feelings are.
One way I can apply this to myself is factually. If a person doesn't believe there is a God they are unable to give Him glory in their live. Second way is to remember to always think, not just use your feelings.
