P112 Messiah’s Militia
P112 Messiah’s Militia is the men’s fellowship at Congregation Beth Yeshua Macon. It is a reference to the fullness of Psalm 112.
1 Halleluyah! How happy is anyone who fears ADONAI, who greatly delights in his mitzvot. 2 His descendants will be powerful on earth, a blessed generation of upright people. 3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness stands forever. 4 To the upright he shines like a light in the dark, merciful, compassionate and righteous. 5 Things go well with the person who is merciful and lends, who conducts his affairs with fairness; 6 for he will never be moved. The righteous will be remembered forever. 7 He will not be frightened by bad news; he remains steady, trusting in ADONAI. 8 His heart is set firm, he will not be afraid, till finally he looks in triumph at his enemies. 9 He distributes freely, he gives to the poor; his righteousness stands forever. His power will be increased honorably. 10 The wicked will be angry when they see this; they will gnash their teeth and waste away, the desires of the wicked will come to nothing.In just a few words, this psalm was chosen to encourage [put courage in] the men in our chavurat (fellowship)–to reverence and fear ADONAI, and delight in His ways, understanding the blessings that are in store for those who choose this way. Believing that men are the framework or skeleton that carries our congregation, our men meet regularly on the second Sunday (Yom Rishon), to encourage one another, by intertwining our lives, sharing our hearts, and getting together to work on projects around the synagogue.
