TODAY’S SCRIPTURE


God cares for His creation. He shelters even the smallest sparrow, and we glory in His presence. It is a wonderful thing to worship the Lord. One day in His courts is better than a thousand other days anywhere else!

 

For the director of music.

According to gittith.

Of the Sons of Korah.

A psalm.

 

1 How lovely is your dwelling place,

    Lord Almighty!

2 My soul yearns, even faints,

    for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out

    for the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home,

    and the swallow a nest for herself,

    where she may have her young—

a place near your altar,

    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;

    they are ever praising you.

 

5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

    whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,

    they make it a place of springs;

    the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7 They go from strength to strength,

    till each appears before God in Zion.

 

8 Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;

    listen to me, God of Jacob.

9 Look on our shield, O God;

    look with favor on your anointed one.

 

10 Better is one day in your courts

    than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

    the Lord bestows favor and honor;

no good thing does he withhold

    from those whose walk is blameless.

 

12 Lord Almighty,

    blessed is the one who trusts in you.

(Psalm 84)
