Today’s reading is from Psalm 34, verses 8 through 14. As we hear it together, can I listen for what the Holy Spirit might have to say to me about goodness? Are there any words or phrases that I want to spend some time with today?
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good.
Blessed is the person who goes to him for safety.
9 You holy people of God, have respect for the LORD.
Those who respect him have everything they need.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry.
But those who look to the LORD have every good thing they need.
11 My children, come. Listen to me.
I will teach you to have respect for the LORD.
12 Do you love life
and want to see many good days?
13 Then keep your tongue from speaking evil.
Keep your lips from telling lies.
14 Turn away from evil and do good.
Look for peace and go after it.
Loving God, help us to wait for your goodness to grow in us. Help us to taste your goodness, and to always want more. And help us see your goodness all around us, because you never change. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
