DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 40; Psalms 94-95; Acts 24:1-23

How excellent is thy loving kindness, O God.    Psalm 36:7

The teacher asked a little boy, “What is the difference between kindness and loving kindness?” The little boy replied with assurance, “kindness is when my mom puts peanut butter on my bread, but loving kindness is when my mom puts peanut butter and jelly on my bread.” For the Christian, God’s loving kindness is His mercy, His grace, and all His myriad kindnesses to us. But more—all of God’s kindnesses are compounded with His marvelous love. It is infinite for finite man, unchanging and secure forever. As we remember the Lord today, consider God’s loving kindness and how excellent it is to us. —Robert Gentile

He saw me ruined by the fall, yet loved me notwithstanding all;
He saved me from my lost estate, His loving kindness, oh, how great.
—Samuel Medley
