RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, June 17, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

I have been writing daily and/or weekly devotions nearly my entire life (at one point or another). One aspect about reading and studying God’s Word that never fails to amaze me is how often I have to really dig to find something to day.

It’s almost as if I want to write a devotion that goes like this…

Yup. That’s it. ‘Nuf said!

The fact of the matter is that, with many readings from the Bible, that’s really true! Sometimes the text has got to be allowed to stand on its own terms.

Many of the Psalms read this way, and I’m at a loss of what else I can say other than to point to the text itself and allow it to “just be.”

And may we “just be” too.

Quiet our hearts to hear your voice in the words you have given me today, O God. Amen.
