Raising the Poor From The Dust

Today’s Lectionary Reading is from Psalm 113:1-9. These verses are challenging—hard for me to imagine that the poor around me are “seated” among the princes, the governors, the CEOs of our days. This chapter rebukes me and compels me to treat the powerless and disenfranchised in our society with dignity and compassion. So, help me God!

“He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes, with the princes of his people. He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children.” (Psalm 113:7-9 NIV)

What is God’s challenge for you today?
