Friday, February 21 — Psalm 28
Genesis 49; Matthew 17:14–27
Out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man. The man gave names to all. Genesis 2:19,20
Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26
Loving Creator of all things—we give you thanks for everything we can see, hear, touch, smell, and taste. May our faith be strong knowing that although you created all things, that our worth is greater than the birds, and that our needs will always be met. May we be able to distinguish between a need and a want. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
