17th Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 37:1-9, paraphrased by Pastor William
Stop fussing and being envious;
good things happen to bad people too.
That is not a reward for their behavior;
rain falls on good and evil alike.
Stay focused on what matters;
continue to do good.
Remember God loves you;
God desires good for you.
Dedicate yourself to following God’s ways;
where grace, mercy and love reign.
Rest in God’s goodness;
let evildoers wallow in their filth.
Renounce your anger;
nothing good comes from it.
Be glad God provides enough for all;
cherish what God does for you.
