Proper 11/Ordinary 16 2015 – 2 Samuel 7:12-14a

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

2 Samuel 7:12-14aWhen your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come forth from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.  He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.  I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me.

Like many of you, I suspect, I want the world to be a better place when I am gone because of my contributions.  But since most of us won’t have the privilege of a covenant the magnitude of the one given to David, the best chance to meet our collective dream will come from faithfully working together.

Gracious God, help us in our efforts as we work together to make your world more loving and more just for all.  Amen.
