Unwrap The Gift
At church one Sunday, I noticed a woman carrying a Bible neatly wrapped in colorful ribbon, like a package. My first thought was that she must be giving it to someone as a present.
Throughout the next few weeks, however, I realized that was the woman’s own well-used Bible. Whenever a worship service or Bible study ended, she carefully rewrapped the Scriptures with that shimmery strand.
What a great reminder that God’s Word is a precious, practical gift meant to be opened and reopened regularly.
Preparation For Worship
What does the Lord require of us? Simply this: to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8). May it be so.

Bless, O God, those who lead and assist this morning [evening] as they serve you and enable us to participate in this time of worship. Amen.

“Blessed are they who … seek [the Lord] with all their heart … [and] walk in his ways” (Psalm 119:2-3, NIV). I come seeking you, Lord; please guide my path.
* * *
Divine Spirit, open my ears to hear your Word, my heart to receive it and my mouth to respond in praise. Amen.
The Double Clasp
The Savior's hand — how close its hold,
That none can loosen, none can break.
No powers of heaven or earth or hell
That loving clasp can ever shake.
And over Jesus’ wounded hand
The Father’s hand of strength is laid,
Omnipotent to save and keep;
Thus is our surety surer made.
So, one beneath and one above,
Father and Son their hands unite.
How safe, how safe the ransomed are
Within that clasp of tender might!
—Annie Johnson Flint
