Sunday, November 5 — Micah 3:5-12; Psalm 43
1 Thessalonians 2:9-13; Matthew 23:1-12

Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life and honor. Proverbs 21:21

Strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33

Each day is a gift from you, gracious God. The air we breathe, the trees that shade our paths, the water that nourishes us—are all gifts from you. Our congregation, our friends and family members, our coworkers, and our pets are blessings that we’ve received from you. In gratitude for all these gifts and more, let our lives be a blessing to you, to our earth, and to those around us. Amen.
