Psalm 85:8-13 NIV

I will listen to what God the Lord will say;
  he promises peace to his people, his saints-
  but let them not return to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
  that his glory may dwell in our land.
Love and faithfulness meet together;
  righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
  and righteousness looks down from heaven.
The Lord will indeed give what is good,
  and our land will yield its harvest.
Righteousness goes before him
  and prepares the way for his steps.


Midday Prayer

Lord God,
with your Son you made heaven and earth,
and through him you continue to accomplish your purpose
for creation.
Make us witnesses to your truth and instruments of your peace,
that all may know you are the God of justice,
and trust your holy name;
through Jesus Christ our Savior.


Matthew 5:43-48

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”


Philippians 2:5-11

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
  Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
  but made himself nothing,
    taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
  And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    and became obedient to death-
      even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.
