Psalms With Purpose For Young People - Psalm 12: 1, 7-8

Here’s a practical example to help understand-

Psalms 12:1, 7-8

Save and help and rescue, Lord, for godly people cease to be,

For the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.

You, O Lord, will preserve and keep them;

You will protect him from this [evil] generation forever.

The wicked strut about [in pompous self-importance] on every side,

As vileness is exalted and baseness is prized among the sons of men.


In a social media world filled with negativity and self-promotion, imagine John is a beacon of positivity. He creates content that inspires others to spread kindness and compassion. While it might be easier to engage in online negativity, John chooses to use his platform to uplift others.


How this connects to Psalm 12:


Saving and helping: John's online presence offers a safe space for people to share their struggles and find support. He actively helps others feel loved and valued.

Rescue: Through his positivity, John inspires others to be more compassionate and empathetic. He brings hope to those who feel isolated and alone.

Preserving and keeping: John's positive influence, like the Lord's, has a lasting impact on others. It creates a ripple effect of positive change.

This demonstrates that even one person can make a positive difference by choosing to spread kindness and compassion.


Being a godly example is not easy in this world, and there can be challenges and obstacles to face such as:

Peer pressure: from friends or classmates to conform to negative behavior.

Fear of rejection: of being excluded from social groups if you choose to stand up for what you believe is right.

Self-doubt: in your ability to make a difference.

How to incorporate the principles of Psalm 12 into your daily life:


Choose positive role models: look up to people who have been known for their kindness and integrity.

Speak out against negativity: confront negative behavior, even when it is difficult.

Practice empathy: try to understand the perspectives of others and find ways to be compassionate towards them.

Spread kindness: engage in acts of kindness, both small and large.

Be persistent: stay strong in your beliefs and do not give up even when faced with challenges.

Remember: The Lord is your strength and you are very loved by God.
