6th Sunday after Epiphany
Psalm 1 paraphrase by Pastor William
It is so cool;
you don’t listen to deceivers,
you don’t lust after riches,
you don’t think only of yourself.
Nope, you know right from wrong;
you follow God’s orders,
you give to the poor,
you serve others.
You are like a strong oak tree;
planted in a grassy meadow,
fed by God’s rain,
stretching out your branches.
But those selfish and greedy people;
they get blown around,
like a kite cut from its string.
God welcomes you into his home,
God lingers in your presence.
Not so those mischievous scoundrels,
they have no home,
no lasting presence.
