Today's Scripture: Psalm 100:5
The LORD is good; his love is eternal and his faithfulness lasts forever.
1Sing to the Lord, all the world!
2Worship the Lord with joy;
come before him with happy songs!
3Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we belong to him;
we are his people, we are his flock.
4Enter the Temple gates with thanksgiving;
go into its courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise him.

his love is eternal

This psalm affirms that we belong to God and compares God’s people to a flock of sheep. What are your thoughts about this image? Verse 5 concludes the psalm with the reason for praising God. How will you thank and praise God today?
Lord, you indeed are good and your faithfulness lasts forever. Gather us all into your flock and renew and refresh us with your life-giving Word. I thank and praise you for your mercy, love, and care. Amen.
Those who tend flocks of sheep
