Jesus taught us, saying: “Can you not buy two sparrows for a penny? And yet not one falls to the ground without your Father knowing. Why, every hair on your head has been counted. So there is no need to be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
And they will say, “Surely, there is a reward for the righteous;* surely, there is a God who rules in the earth.”
The Morning Psalm
If You Would but Listen
You called on me in trouble, and I saved you;* I answered you from the secret place of thunder and tested you at the waters of Meribah.
Hear, O my people, and I will admonish you:* O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
There shall be no strange god among you;* you shall not worship a foreign god.
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and said,* “Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.”
