Saturday, June 29, 2024 — Psalm 80:8–11
Deuteronomy 8:1–9:6; Luke 6:12–26

Remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years draw near when you will say, “I have no pleasure in them.” Ecclesiastes 12:1

I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me like one of your hired hands.” Luke 15:18-19

Loving Father, when times of trouble come, we are sometimes tempted to see you as the cause and turn away from you. We take comfort in the trust that when we reject you, you do not abandon us. We thank you that you remain faithful to us even in times of our indifference. May we not test your patience, but may we remember your goodness and return to you, knowing that you await us with a forgiving and open heart. Amen.
