Scriptures for Sunday June 28

Psalm 13

Most people go through times in life when they feel as David does as he begins this psalm. It seems as though God has forgotten us. We can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, and we wonder why God doesn’t do something about it.

In such times it can be difficult to pray, let alone to praise God. But David has learned from past experience that God is faithful, and he trusts God to deliver him looks expectantly to that day of rejoicing.

2 Corinthians 6:1-13

It is apparent in this letter that Paul is hurt by the Corinthians’ attitude toward him. Often when we fell hurt by others in this way, we react by withdrawing our friendship and perhaps hurting them in return. Paul, however, makes it clear that his affection for the church remains as strong as ever. He wants what is best for them and is willing to suffer if necessary in pursuing this goal.

1 Peter 3:8-12

Peter also calls upon believers to do what does not come naturally. We tend to quarrel, but he tells us to have unity. We think of ourselves and our own needs but he tells us to be humble. We respond to harm and insults by wanting to do the same back, but he tells us to return blessing instead, because we are called to something higher.
