'Sharing Our Joy'

St. Isidore

O God, let all the nations praise you!

- Psalm 67:4 (responsorial)

There's a joy in recognizing the way things really are. We honor Newton and Einstein because they recognized something fundamental about the way the universe is put together. There's an exclamation of joy in seeing how gravity works, a "eureka" that bursts forth in discovering how things are. Such delight happens not by way of coercion, but by way of recognition.

We claim this recognition today as, bursting with Easter joy, we sing to God, "Let all the nations praise you." There's an eschatological tone to this verse; otherwise, it's only wishful thinking. The nations are summoned on judgment day. The ones who will give praise in God's kingdom are those who had compassion for God's little ones. This is the force that moves the universe. We're not going to go and force people to think as we do or subjugate them to our ways. By sharing our joy and serving the little ones, we help all nations to know God--his love, his mercy, his ways.

O God, let all the nations praise you!

This is a powerful devotion, thank you Mary.

The word of the Lord will continue to spread and increase by "sharing our joy and serving the little ones". As our hometown as a "starting point", may we all help all nations come to know God, his love, his mercy, his ways and most of all serve Him.

Lord, all the power and glory are Yours, now and for ever!

God Bless our Living Faith Family.

Continued prayers for you, Ken and your wife Kathy.

Prayers to our entire Living Faith Family. Special intentions for Ken and his family.

Dear Jesus, as the apostles and disciples went out filled with the Holy Spirit to share the word of God, so please help me share the light with others as well. For you are the true light for all to see, rich in comfort, grace and blessings.

Believe and share the light with someone today, even if it in a small way.

Yes, let all the nations praise You, Lord! Here is why in Psalm 67:2-3, 5
* God has pity on us
* and bless us;
* He let His face shine upon us.
* His way is known upon earth;
* among all nations, His Salvation.
* He rules the peoples in equity;
* the nations on the earth He guides.

Jesus confirmed the above in John 12:46-48,”
* I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in Me might not remain in darkness. (Blessing)
* And if anyone hears My Words and does not observe them, I do not condemn him, for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world. (Salvation)
* Whoever rejects Me and does not accept My Words has something to judge him: the Word that I spoke, it will condemn him on the last day,” (Guidance)

May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You! May God bless us, and may all the ends of the earth fear You! Amen, (Psalm 67:6, 8)
