Daily Bread

From Today's Office
You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 118:28–29
In his goodness, God has already counted us as his sons and daughters, and therefore we should not grieve him by our evil actions. We want to do this so as not to cause a disappointment, not to cause sorrow to this all-good Father. This wonderful Father! —M. Basil Pennington, OCSO, Listen with Your Heart, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Thank you for reminding me, Father, that this world is a spiritual battlefield. Thank you that your Son has won the victory over the enemy and has equipped me to stand with him in that victory. I choose to do that today. For Jesus’s sake. Amen.
