Thursday, October 19 — Psalm 119:33–40
Ezekiel 23:28–24:8; James 3:13–4:6
The Lord declares, “Those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be treated with contempt.” 1 Samuel 2:30
Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not realize that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? Romans 2:4
Our world is filled with ignorance and illusion. As Christians, we are in this world but not of it. Holy Spirit, guide us as we endeavor to illuminate the dark corners, shadows, and voids by sharing in every word and action the good news of God’s salvation through Christ. Amen.
