The tragedies in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, and Dallas have brought us all to tears, and in light of events like these, a psalm like this can come off as trite, meaningless, or perhaps even escapist and cruel.
But in fact this passage has much to teach us about our humanness—what we’re here for, why we hurt so much, and whether there is any hope that the darkness will not win.
