G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 06.16.123
I keep the Lord always before me, therefore, my soul rejoices.
Dear Lord, it needs a scripture scholar to enlighten us about Elisha killing oxen or to find your meaning when you tell us not to use oaths but rather to just say yes or no.
Not many of us have to take oaths today but it would not be well received in the present court of law to just say yes or no; disposing of oxen to follow a prophet is right out of our league.
So today’s prayer from the psalmist is the one we love best. It is rejoicing in your protection and knowing that you are God and that we can take refuge in you because you are always with us.
With the psalmist, we acknowledge that you are Lord and all good comes from you; that you will never let us down.
1 Kings 19:19-21. You are my inheritance, O Lord—Ps 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-10. Matthew 5:33-37.
