Wednesday, January 13 — Psalm 9:11–20
1 Chronicles 12; Acts 12:20–13:7
“A son honors his father. If then I am a father, where is the honor due me?” says the Lord. Malachi 1:6
A man had two sons; he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ He answered, ‘I will not’; but later he changed his mind and went. Matthew 21:28-29
Jesus, you are a tireless and prudent gardener. Let us honor you with the fruits that we bear. Help us to clear away the thorns and brambles in our lives that do not honor you. Jesus, help us to be more like you. In your name, we pray. Amen.
