Thursday, December 14 — Psalm 143:1–6
Micah 6,7; Revelation 13:11–14:5

The Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked.” Genesis 3:9–10

Paul wrote: And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Galatians 4:6–7

God of the garden, you have placed us in your natural world. May we enjoy your creation and be good stewards of it. Call us as your beloved children and make us obedient to your will. Amen.
