Standard

Daylight Scripture – Who can live in your tent, Lord? Who can dwell on your holy mountain? The person who lives free of blame, does what is right, and speaks the truth sincerely; who does no damage with their talk, does no harm to a friend, doesn’t insult a neighbor; someone who despises those who act wickedly, but who honors those who honor the Lord; someone who keeps their promise even when it hurts; someone who doesn’t lend money with interest, who won’t accept a bribe against any innocent person. Whoever does these things will never stumble.

Psalm 15: 1-5

Daylight Prayer – Gracious Lord, sometimes I feel like the psalmist wondering who will get to heaven, who will be able to live in your house. He speculates like I do, and he sets up all the parameters expected. Yet I know you Lord, in your mercy you forgive us for all of our sins, for all the times we can’t hold up our end, and when we stumble, you are there with us. I am so thankful for your grace that makes us able to live in your kingdom because of Jesus, and only because of him. I am so grateful for your mercy and acceptance of me. Amen.
