Wednesday, November 22 — Psalm 131
Daniel 9:1–10:7; Jude 1:11–25
How can a mortal be just before God? If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand. Job 9:2-3
I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.” Luke 15:18
The grace that you have extended to us, dear God, is difficult to comprehend. Your forgiveness of our sins is so radical in a world where people still seek an eye for an eye. Thank you for setting this example, and for being our strength when it is our turn to forgive a wrong done to us. Your grace is life-giving. Amen.
