Righteous Acts

Righteous Acts

Word of God
Psalm 103:6-10 King James Version (KJV)
6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
Devotional Insight
By Frances Taylor

Praise God for all his goodness, his gifts to us, for forgiving our sins, for sending us a Redeemer even when we didn’t deserve to be redeemed! You want justice for all your children, you have let us know of your majesty and your kindness to us. How can we ever thank you! How often we forget to praise and thank you! On this day in May, let us stop and think of all that God has done for us. Let us remember all the times God has shown us his mercy and forgiveness. Let us also take some to examine our own behavior. How many times in the past few weeks have we shown kindness to someone? Have we forgiven someone or shown them mercy? Have we held on to anger? If we have failed in any of these things recently, perhaps we can take some time to do for others as God has done for us. When we remember God’s goodness to us, it reminds us to show goodness to others.

In recent years, I have heard the Hindu word, “Namaste” quite a bit. The other day, my daughter asked me what it meant. I really didn’t know, even though I hear it so often. So I looked it up. According to my sources, it means, “I bow to the divine in you.” I’m not sure all the people you use it even know the meaning but as Christians who believe that God created each one of us in his image and likeness, we should be able to see the divine in everyone and allow them to see the divine in us. If we do that, then it is so much easier to treat others with the same kindness, mercy and goodness with which God treats us. Namaste!

Let us pray

Loving God, how seldom we take the time to remember your goodness in every aspect of our lives. May we take some time today to think about how we may be better witnesses of your love to those we meet. Amen.
