Devotion – Psalm 118:1-2 19-29
As a child, I remember learning many Christian songs: This Little Light Of Mine, Jesus Loves Me; He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands; and This Is The Day. Many of us were taught these foundational lessons from childhood and we are reminded here of the scriptural basis for these lessons. This Psalm say: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. This is a moment of exaltation and thanksgiving. This is how we are taught to view the Lord as kids, but are we get older our approach is infected by the question: God, what have you done for me lately? Where did our desire to give thanks go? Why do we struggle to give thanks in the day of the Lord? We need to give thanks. We need to celebrate. As we head toward the close of Lent we get excited about the resurrection of Christ, but we are also faced with the tough reality of death. It is through death that God knows and save us from this human condition and for that we know he is good.
Reflection: Do I see your day or do I reserve all days for myself?
Prayer: I give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! Amen.
