Today’s Scripture:

Psalm 136:1-9, 23-26

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.

O give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever.

O give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever;

who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever;

who by understanding made the heavens, for his steadfast love endures forever;

who spread out the earth on the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever;

who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever;

the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever;

the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever;

It is he who remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever;

and rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever;

who gives food to all flesh, for his steadfast love endures forever.

O give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Food For Thought:

The line that stands out to me is that God’s steadfast love endures forever. Think about God’s love and how you have experienced God’s love. I have experienced God’s love in numerous ways. I have experienced it when I have received forgiveness from another person. I have experienced it when a child offers a hug to me on a hard day. I have experienced it when I felt in darkness and despair and someone offered me a word of kindness and encouragement. I have felt God’s love when I felt unlovable.

 

Prayer:

Precious love,

your ascended Son promised the gift of holy power.

Send your Spirit of revelation and wisdom,

that in the blessed freedom of hope,

we may witness to the grace of forgiveness

and sing songs of joy with the peoples of earth

to the One who makes us one body. Amen.
