“Lord, you have searched me and known me; you know my sitting down and my rising up; you discern my thoughts from afar.” The opening words to the Psalm this week could - and probably should - give us anxiety. Do we want to be known in this way? Every detail and inner thought in our minds on perfect display? The truth of the matter is that all of us hide pieces of who we are. Whether we’re hiding things from coworkers, family, friends, or even our spouses, we are timid to divulge ourselves in full. What causes the anxiety is the fear that we won’t be loved as a result of our inner-self. But the gospel teaches us that God, through Jesus, sees beyond our sin to know and to love us.
