2nd Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 50:7-15 paraphrased by Pastor William
Listen up people;
hear what God has to say:
“I am your God;
you have ignored me too long!
You buy yourself groceries,
but bring nothing to food pantries.
You give a little bit to the church,
but you forget the rest is mine too.
I won’t take it much longer;
you need to change your ways.
I know every animal by name,
and every movement in the fields.
I don’t need your money or food,
I need you to use it for my work.
Give to my work first,
not a pittance of leftovers.
Give out of thankfulness,
for all I have done for you.
And when you’re in trouble, call on me
I’ll continue to bless you;
and you can give thanks.”
