Psalm 118: 21-25
21 I thank you that you have answered me
and have become my salvation.
22 The stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.
23 This is the Lord’s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save us, we beseech you, O Lord!
O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!
Thank you for the ways you are constantly surprising us, using the least expected moments and the most unassuming people to further your work in our midst. Open our eyes to the possibilities – of rejected stones, unlikely outsiders, seemingly mundane situations. Give us the imagination to dream of a whole new world with you.
