Praise to you, Lord, from the 81st Psalm:
It’s a song of rejoicing,
But you implore us
To follow your ways.
Three times the Psalmist pleads with us to listen,
“If my people would but listen to me...”
I pray that we will be better listeners,
That we make time for reflection,
Recognize the need for repentance,
And find renewal.
The Psalm concludes with your promise:
“…you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you."
Thank you, Father, that in Jesus we have received that
“bread of life” (John 6:35)…and sweet honey from the rock.
But the world is hungry. With whom can we share our bread today? Amen.
