Wednesday, May 10 — Psalm 61

Proverbs 2:9–3:20; 1 Corinthians 12:12–26

Those who mock the poor insult their Maker; those who are glad at calamity will not go unpunished. Proverbs 17:5

Jesus said, “Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for, I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:10

You call us to be servant of all, O Christ, yet we cling to fame and fortune. Help us to be leaders in service, finding solidarity with the poor, rather than envy of the rich. Amen.
