Psalm 127, Leviticus 23.1-22, Luke 12.13-34 - Lectionary for 5/24/11 - Commemoration of Esther

Today is the commemoration of Esther the queen.
Today's readings are Psalm 127, Leviticus 23.1-22, and Luke 12.13-34.

Psalm 127.2 (ESV) "It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil, for he gives to his beloved sleep."

Throughout today's readings we see that God provides for the needs of his people. We can trust in our Lord for all we need, whether it is what is required for the Sabbath, the Passover, or the other celebrations throughout the year. Jesus reminds us in Luke that he is the one who provides us with all we need. His provision is based on his knowledge of our need and his care for us.

We have no need to worry. We confide in a living God whose good pleasure is to give us the kingdom. We can rest in him.
