Take this day to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.
Each Saturday we have turned from the tragedy of Judges to the hope of the gospel in Psalm 32, a psalm about joy and forgiveness.
I will instruct you and show you the way to go;
with my eye on you, I will give counsel.
Do not be like a horse or mule,
that must be controlled with bit and bridle
or else it will not come near you.
Many pains come to the wicked,
but the one who trusts in the LORD
will have faithful love surrounding him.
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice,
you righteous ones;
shout for joy,
all you upright in heart.
