The Reading for Today: Psalm 82
The priorities of the Lord are urged to become our own. True worship increases our love for those who do not worship. These are ones “turned off,” who do not experience justice, perhaps because they have not received hesed, the love, and mercy of the Lord through you.
Keep open. You cannot do it all, but the Lord through you can do all things. Pray this psalm in a personal way, asking the Lord to show you how you are to complete the works of mercy in your own life. Wait. Listen. Believe that the Lord will speak to your heart about the poor ones who are closest to God’s own heart. Jot down notes in your journal; the Lord may become very explicit with you and you will want to remember.
This is the first of thirteen weeks in Kingdomtide, Year B.
