Friday, August 21† — Psalm 102:12–22
Jeremiah 18:1–19:9; 1 Timothy 3:8–16
God knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with him. Daniel 2:22
Do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. 1 Corinthians 4:5
Dear God, we praise you that your light shines in darkness of any kind. As Christ loved all, may we love all. May our witness be to his extraordinary love for the stranger and the neighbor, the friend and the foe alike. Amen.
† On this day in 1732, the first missionaries departed from Herrnhut bound for St. Thomas.
