Psalm 137:1-9

Big Idea of the Series: This six-week series looks at some of the passages in the Bible that don’t sit well with most modern readers. Passages like the imprecatory Psalms, the story of Judah and Tamar, Jesus dismissing the gentile woman at the dinner table, and Jesus’s command to hate our families. By exploring several parts of Scripture that challenge our understanding of the Bible and of God, we can strengthen our faith and find unexpected blessings in his Word.

Week 1

Text: Psalm 137:1–9

Topics: Righteous Anger, Grace, Remembrance

Big Idea of the Message: Imprecatory prayers are a way to be honest with God, to initiate a process of spiritual healing through God’s grace and mercy, and only possible if our friendship with the Lord is strong.
