Who am I, Lord, that you account for me?

Birds of Palenque.

Audio file:

Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? (Matt 6:26)

When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars that you set in place What is man that you are mindful of him, and a son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him little less than a god, crowned him with glory and honor (PS 8:4-6).

The Lord will not fail you in hardship. Hardship is not a reflection of dignity. Our dignity comes from the Lord.

The Lord comes to our aid. Each of these birds he knows and loves. He hears them sing. He hears you too.

As for our own listening and hearing?

Failing to aid or oppressing one in hardship is a reflection of your lack of expression of your human dignity.

Peace be with you,

Deacon Gerry
