Musings of a Recovering Lutheran: Today's verse
O LORD, God of my salvation,
         I have cried out day and night before You.
Let my prayer come before You;
         Incline Your ear to my cry. 

Psalm 88:1-2 (NKJV)

Today's verse

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.

Are there any things that are mine? And what should I do with them?

It was Job (the original Chicago Cub's fan) who said, "Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."

In other words, what we have in this life is on loan from God. That should guide our actions.

We have a place in Heaven - if we are willing to claim it.
