Thought for the Day: These are familiar words to most, though they are often the portion of Psalm 23 that people prefer to ignore. We like the Lord as our shepherd and the still waters and getting our souls restored. The whole enemy thing leaves us scratching our head. Why? Unless, by chance, it is a very very long table and they can go sit out of sight. Of course, those enemies might not be thrilled to be sitting with us. This beautiful image is discomforting because the Great Banquet, the Heavenly Feast of Welcome prepared for us by God will have an invitation list defined by the grace of God. None of us have a say in regard to who will be on the invitation list, though that includes those enemies seated at the table with us. They can’t disinvite us. This is good news, and a great vision of God’s great work of redemption.
Prayer: If your grace is truly grace, O God, then I guess it might require that such grace is extended to those who I might have defined as unworthy. Though if honest, my name is probably on someone’s list of unworthy. Thank you for not taking their word. Amen.
