Daily Scripture

O Lord, what are human beings that you regard them, or mortals that you think of them? They are like a breath; their days are like a passing shadow. (Psalm 144:3-4)

Daily Reflection

If this last 12-15 months of living through the pandemic has shown us anything, it is this: just how important relationships are, and how precious life is. Whatever age we each live to, life - in the grand scheme of things - is short. The Psalmist refers to it as a breath, a passing shadow. There is one relationship that we should not neglect to work on, our relationship with God. The creator of the earth, the galaxy, the universe…. thinks about us, about you; and the psalmist asks, “why God would do that?” Because he loves and cares for all His creation. He loves you. So we should do our bit to draw closer to God. Job (afflicted by many problems) said, “As for me, I would seek God, and to God I would commit my cause.” Follow Job’s example.
