Psalm 106: 1-6, 19-23
Praise the Lord.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord or fully declare his praise? Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right. Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise.
We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly.
At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal. They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass. They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. So he said he would destroy them–had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them.
We, as God’s chosen people, seem to keep committing the same sins as all the generations before us while God’s goodness and love for all remains constant. We need to praise God always, proclaim his faithfulness and learn from the mistakes of others. God alone is worthy of praise! Praise the Lord!
Father forgive us for the many wrongs that we have committed. Thank you for showing your favor when you sent your Son to bring us your joy and forgiveness. We desire to be in a relationship where we worship you in spirit and truth. Thank you for the great, awesome deeds you have given to all who will praise you in Jesus’ name, amen.
