Daily Bread

From Today's Office
I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise; I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything.

Psalm 138:1–2
Advent comes each year and says; “This is the time!” Can you recognize it? Kairos is here. This is the hour of salvation. This is the time “for you to wake from sleep.” Wake up to the here and now. Wake up and see how God is moving in your life. Wake up and learn to tell kairos time.
—Mark A. Villano, Time to Get Ready
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Dear Lord, what matters more than any works is my relationship with you, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. I too often rejoice in things on earth and in what makes me feel good about myself. Help me to choose to look up and rejoice that my name is written in heaven. Amen.
