Psalm 16. You will show me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy, and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
This is one of the greatest gifts of the Bible, the Word of God passed down to us through the generations. God speaks in many ways to all parts and seasons of our lives. We have all had times when we trusted deeply in God and times when we felt God-forsaken. Most of us have experienced the holiness of friendship and how it sustains us when life is hard. Practical advice abounds in our society, and we know how that benefits us too. Finally, we all need to be reminded of the wonder of Christ’s transformative, healing presence.
In the biblical witness, we are sustained along the “path of life.” Where in these readings does God speak to you today?
