About Today Readings

Ecclesiasticus 27:4-7. Psalm 91(92):2-3, 13-16. 1 Corinthians 14:54-58. Luke 6:39-45

Lord, it is good to give thanks to you – Psalm 91(92):2-3, 13-16. 

Today’s psalm proclaims the transforming power of gratitude: ‘Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.’ When we become aware of the many gifts we have received, we find it easier to sing praise to God’s holy name. As we learn to ‘proclaim your kindness at dawn and your faithfulness throughout the night’ we come to see our lives as soaked with God’s presence.

The invitation is to collaborate with God in the dynamic movement of creation and redemption at work in our world. Today let us bring our desires before the Lord so that we may ‘flourish in the courts of our God’.

The psalmist announces that even to old age shall we bear fruit in the presence of the Lord. The one who carries justice to peoples brings peace to hearts. He will be sure to send us out with strength and courage.
