(Psalm 34)

“Many are the troubles of the just but out of them all, the Lord delivers.”

Reflection:
It would seem that following the Lord would always lead to a life of peace and harmony. The life of Jesus, however, would suggest otherwise.

Prayer:
Lord God, it is your heart’s desire that we become children of the Light, yet you yourself tasted the dark side of life. Give us courage to follow in your footsteps.
