Psalm 34:1-8, (19-22)
I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.
O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor soul cried, and was heard by the LORD, and was saved from every trouble.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
O taste and see that the LORD is good; happy are those who take refuge in him.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD rescues them from them all.
He keeps all their bones; not one of them will be broken.
Evil brings death to the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
The LORD redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
Food For Thought:
The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is that I will bless the Lord continually, praise will always be on my mouth. Think about ways that you bless the Lord. Think about ways that you seek to bless others. How do you bless others with the words that you say and the deeds that you do?
God of the covenant,
even when we fall into sin,
your Spirit invites us to remember
that you chose us to be your servant people.
Awaken us to the power and gifts
you pour into us for the good of creation,
and grant that we may be trustworthy in all things,
producing abundantly as we work to build your realm. Amen.
