Proper 8/Ordinary 13 2015 – Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15God did not make death, and he does not delight in the death of the living.  For he created all things so that they might exist; the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion of Hades is not on earth.  For righteousness is immortal.

The Wisdom of Solomon is not in the Bible of my tradition, but it does appear in those of several other Christian traditions.  I am moved by this acknowledgement that the truly life-giving forces of our world are good, healthy, and nourishing.

Life-giving God, help us to be generative forces in the lives of those people who are around us today and every day.  Amen.
