Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
Psalm 45 is an unusual Psalm, and our reading, from verses 10-17, makes it a little more difficult. Let's lay just a little context and see if it helps.
The Psalm is attributed to 'the sons of Korah.' The Psalmist is commenting on the glory and beauty of the promised Messianic king. Probably the most telling passage is verses 6-7, where the king is God and God anoints the king.
Verses 10-17 can be reasonably applied to two different characters in Christianity. As an individual the "daughter" here may refer to Mary, the blessed woman, chosen by God to leave her father's house and bear a son who is greater than her father. The image of Mary as a queen of sorts can come from this idea.
A more likely candidate, at least in my mind, is the Church, referred to in the New Testament using the feminine gender and clearly sought out by God for favor. The Church not only serves as the bride of Christ, but also bears many children.
Regardless, one image should stand out to us. In verse 10 we forget our people and seek the Lord God (v. 11). That is the calling for every Christian. We have been loved by God. In return, we seek His face. We bring honor to God's name as we speak of it from one generation to another, and from one place to another. God's name is worthy of all praise.
