Seeking the kingdom.
Trust in God as the Rock of our salvation, as
the Lord who made us His chosen people, as our
shepherd and guide. This
should be the mark of our following of Jesus.
Like the Israelites in this week's Psalm, we
have made an exodus, passing through the waters
of Baptism, freeing us from our bondage to sin.
We too are on a pilgrimage to a promised
homeland with the Lord in our midst, feeding us
giving us living waters to drink. We must take
care to guard
against the folly that befell the Israelites,
that led them to quarrel
and test God's goodness at Meribah and Massah.
