Tehillim Twenty-Eight: Inheritance

“Save Your people and bless Your inheritance, and tend them and elevate them forever (Psalms 28:9).” Just as Judaism and Torah are our inheritance as the Jewish people, simultaneously we are God’s inheritance. In every generation we inherit a canon of tradition, culture, and values. Personally, I’m committed to preserving and passing on that inheritance. But what does God get from us in each subsequent era? An inheritance is something that perpetuates and keeps on giving, so I’m choosing to read into this that God gets something new from us in perpetuity as well. Is it because each of us is an individual, and brings something new to our relationships with God? Or is it because God Himself has evolved with history, and therefore relates to us in different ways?
