Bonus Reading, Psalms

The Soul Yearns for God's Salvation  

Today's reading is the final part of Psalm 119, the long song about the richness and beauty of God's teaching in the holy scripture.  It is a concluding plea for God to act in the world, righting the actions of evildoers -- especially those who harm people trying to keep the faith by following God's word.  "Let your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts.  I long for your salvation, O Lord, and your law is my delight."

Read Psalms 119:145-176  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
