Gift: Piety (Reverence) – With the gift of reverence, sometimes called piety, we have a deep sense of respect for God and the Church. A person with reverence recognizes our total reliance on God and comes before God with humility, trust, and love.
Reading: The LORD’s face is against evildoers to wipe out their memory from the earth. The righteous cry out, the LORD hears and he rescues them from all their afflictions. (Psalm 34:17-18)
Observation: I hope the Lord’s face is never against me. In other words, I do not want to be an evildoer. I hope that my cries to the Lord are deemed worthy to rescue me from my afflictions. This reading was such a blessing to me today.
Personification: Gentleness I hope to display the fruit of gentleness today, by paying attention to the needs of all of my family that is around me now. I want to be attentive to everyone, but not neglect anyone in the process.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, I have redemption by your blood, and forgiveness of our sins, in accord with the riches of your grace. Please help me to share this redemption in the ways that your will show to me today. I ask this, as always, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit. Amen.
