Pause

What will you hear today? Take a deep breath. God has something for you, to shape you, to calm you, to inspire you.

Listen

Instead of doing those things, these persons love the Lord’s Instruction, and they recite God’s Instruction day and night!

Psalm 1:2

Think

A reminder that even when we act, feel, and live in a less than faithful way, God roots for us, longs for us, and reminds us through words such as this psalm that we have another chance to live and act like a person of great faith. In just a few words the psalmist reminds us what it’s like to sit in the place of faith (goodness) and what it’s like to sit in the place of emptiness (evil).

Just know: You will sit in both places, many times. In a single day, a year, a lifetime. And faith is knowing that God sits with you. Beside you. Nudging you. Pulling for you. Pushing that life-giving choice in front of you, with all the love and hope that you can choose the place of faith today.

Pray

O, God, help me remember your good words today. Tomorrow. Throughout this week. Let me hear your instruction “day and night.” Let me live in a way that I show your love to those all around me: to my friends, to my family, to the people I encounter. Amen.

Go

Go into the world. Make disciples. Make people curious. Make your faith visible.
