Sharing the Word for December 6, 2021 – Second Week of Advent – Year 2

Monday of the Second Week of Advent

December 6, 2021
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Psalm 85: 9ab, 10, 11-12, 13-14

This psalm was probably composed during the Babylonian exile when the Israelites were tempted to believe that God had forgotten them. The truth is quite other. Far from abandoning them, the Lord offers his gifts to the entire people–to all those who acknowledge his lordship. He is coming to bring them kindness, truth, justice, peace, growth, increase, salvation.

God offers these same gifts to us–gifts that only he can give, gifts that constitute our ultimate well being. They are offered not just to a blessed few but to all of us–to his whole people. It’s up to us to appreciate and accept the gifts he wants us to have. “Our God will come to save us” if we let him.

Pause and Pray
