Wednesday, January 10, 2024 — Psalm 8
Genesis 11:10–12:9; Matthew 5:17–26

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. Psalm 34:14

Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. Romans 14:19

How do you do it, O God? Holding back when you want to lash out? Forgiving and not striking back? Loving enemies? Being kind to them? Peacemaking is hard, O God. We will try, but please give us wisdom and patience. Amen.
