DAILY READINGS

 

Psalm 123

123:1 To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
123:2 As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until he has mercy upon us.
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt.
123:4 Our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.

 

ABUNDANT HEALTH

Move a Little
Love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:5 (NCV)

Want to know the quickest simplest way to begin to improve your health and fitness? You don’t even have to get sweaty. You don’t have to put on gym clothes. You don’t have to lift weights or even get a gym membership. Begin to boost your metabolism, energy, creativity, fitness, and health by performing simple movements throughout your day. For just 1 to 2 minutes every hour of your day, move your body by stretching, walking, squatting, lunging, twisting. With each repetition, thank God for a strong, healthy body and the ability to move.
—Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

God, our provider, your Word creates our life and strength. Everything we have is a gift from your open hand. Guide us by your Spirit to be diligent and faithful stewards of all that you entrust to our care. May we not bury our gifts or fearfully hoard resources. Fill our hearts with trust, so that we can experience your joy in giving. May our congregation show your generosity through our mission in the world. We ask this for the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen.
