Bonus Reading, Psalms

God's Continued Relationship with Israel      

Today's reading is a beautiful psalm about the depth of relationship between God and the chosen people, Israel.  No matter how often the people fall short of God's hopes and dreams for them (and no matter how often they seem to ignore God entirely), God remains faithful to them.  God's steadfast love endures forever for God's people.  (Not coincidentally, this psalm is a parallel to yesterday's reading, Psalm 139.)

Read Psalm 118  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
