Monday, February 15 — Psalm 24
2 Chronicles 21:18–23:21; Acts 22:17–29
The Israelites said to the Lord, “We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you; but deliver us this day!” Judges 10:15
There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:7
Creator of the earth and the example of generous and transforming love, we open our hearts in wonder. Could it possibly be that you love each of us as if we were your favorite? If one of us wanders away, you will abandon the other ninety-nine. Your math is different from ours. Perhaps that is why each of us counts so much to you. Inspire us to love you more; empower us to value others. Amen.
