Reading: Psalm 123:2
2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
till he shows us his mercy.
Thought for Reflection:
Yesterday we thought about the vastness of our God who in his power threw planets and stars out into space. This vision puts our status into context – he is not there for us, but we are here for him. To twist JFK’s famous quote, ‘ask not what your God can do for you, but ask what you can do for your God’.
Lord, forgive us for the times when we’ve made our faith all about us. Help us to put you first and be attentive to your will.
