Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, may the truths I learn today as I sit in Your presences and worship in Your house serve to guide me in my life outside these walls each day.  Help me to be a faithful steward of everything You entrust to me, so that by my words and actions I might honor Your saving name and bring blessing to all among whom I live and work.  It is in Jesus’ name that I pray.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 24

First Reading: 

Proverbs 16:1-9

Our human hearts, although created by God, are often because of sin found in opposition to God.  That is why it is so important that we listen to God, follow God, and rejoice in God, for He ultimately directs our steps into blessing.

Second Reading: 

1 Corinthians 10:6-13

The children of Israel rebelled against God in the wilderness and ended up wandering there for forty years.  Their example should move us to entrust ourselves to God, knowing that He will be with us and enable us to overcome temptation.
