Wisdom 7:7-11. True wisdom is the greatest of riches.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (89) 90
Psalm 90 is a national lament, a prayer for God’s help during a national crisis. The passage we sing today comes from the petition to God at least to balance the evil days with days of gladness. We end with a petition that God would do even more and bring us prosperity.

Suggested Common Psalm

Ps (26) 27: The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation

Hebrews 4:12-13. When we let God’s word live in us, we finally see things aright.

Mark 10:17-30. Life in God asks everything of us, even that which we hold beyond God’s asking. Yet if we give ourselves fully to God, all will be given to us, even that which we have no right to hope for—salvation.
