You might want to take heed to a comment in the end of Psalm 38 if you're a person who seeks to do what's right. David says that there were some who accused him because he was seeking after good. I think what David experienced was not altogether different than what people experience today in that others look down on those who seek to do good and to do what is right. I think people who choose to do good make those who don't choose to do good uncomfortable because the very act of living their lives in a right way creates such a stark contrast against one another that those who choose not to do good feel awkward. The only way to relieve this awkwardness is to get rid of those who do good. Making the choice to do good opens oneself up to a wide range of criticisms. However, those criticisms should not keep us a person from seeking to do what is good and right.
You are here: / / The plight of those seeking good (Psalms 5, 38, and 41-42)
