Reading: Psalm 100 (Click to read text)
I read and reread Psalm 100 thinking about how I might comment on this much-loved poem. I came up with nothing. (I know, “When is Jim Bricker speechless?) So, for today, just reflect on these marvelous words. Here they are in the New American Bible translation. --Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff
Shout joyfully to the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful song.
Know that the Lord is God,
he made us, we belong to him,
we are his people, the flock he shepherds.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him, bless his name;
good indeed is the Lord,
His mercy endures forever,
his faithfulness lasts through every generation.
