Wednesday, June 12, 2024 — Psalm 75
Numbers 30:1–31:12; Luke 1:67–80

You have given humans dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet. Psalm 8:6

“All things are permitted for me,” but not all things are beneficial. “All things are permitted for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything. 1 Corinthians 6:12

Generous Creator, you have defined our relationship to the creation as one of responsible stewardship, keeping and tilling the garden as those accountable to you for its care. Forgive us for acting as if we ourselves are the owners, recklessly using and abusing the earth and sky and sea. Call us back to our role as stewards, gently caring for what is entrusted to us only for a time. Amen.
