Today’s Scripture:

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord;
    praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the Lord
    from this time on and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to its setting
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations,
    and his glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God,

    who is seated on high, who looks far down
    on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust,
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
    making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!

 

Food For Thought:

In this Psalm, the author offers words of praise to God for the many wonderful ways that God has worked through the life of the Psalmist. Today, I want you to think about ways that you can praise God. Sometimes the only way that we think of praising God is through song or words, but there are countless ways that we can show God we are grateful for God’s presence in our lives. Think of a way you can praise God today and extend that praise in acts of loving kindness to others.

Prayer:

O God, you call us to embrace 
both you and the children of this world 
with unconditional love.  Give us grace to discern
what your love demands of us, 
that, being faithful in things both great and small, 
we may serve you with an undivided heart. In your precious name we pray, Amen.
