The scripture for today, December 22, is 1st Samuel 12:22 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“For the sake of his great name, the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.”
Amazing love of God. It pleases him to make us his own. It pleases him! We the lowly. We the weak. We the inconsistent. We the sinners.
Let us reply, “My soul is overwhelmed with joy.”
