Monday

Read Psalm 67:1-7

God, be merciful to us and bless us;
   look on us with kindness,
2 so that the whole world may know your will;
   so that all nations may know your salvation.

3 May the peoples praise you, O God;
   may all the peoples praise you!

4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
   because you judge the peoples with justice
   and guide every nation on earth.

5 May the peoples praise you, O God;
   may all the peoples praise you!

6 The land has produced its harvest;
   God, our God, has blessed us.
7 God has blessed us;
   may all people everywhere honor him.

Think

God's will toward us - is kindness.  As the Psalmist reflects on this kindness in verse 6 he proclaims... "The land has produced its harvest; God, our God, has blessed us." (Verse 6).  We can choose to take all the beauty around us for granted - or recognize every good thing as a blessing from God who is kind.

Pray

Lord help me to see your kindness in the world around me.
