From Today's Office
As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.

Psalm 103:13–14
Meditation
And I have to ask—why are you chasing after all this knowledge anyway? What we need is to recognize how much we don’t know, to see how poor and desperate and helpless we truly are. You just need to know a few simple things: you need to know Jesus. And you need to know Jesus died on a cross. —Winn Collier, Let Go, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Martha knew that whatever you asked of the Father, he would give it to you, Jesus. You have given us the same amazing access to you. This week you seem to be teaching me about boldness in asking. What do you want me to ask you to do for me right now? Amen.
