The scripture for today, May 17 (5/17) is John 5:17 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Jesus said to them, ‘My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.’ “
There are places in the Psalms that say God is thinking about us all the time. When we’re walking, riding, talking, doing, coming, going. God is always working for us. A popular song a few years ago was, “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands.”
But does he always keep us from harm? He gave us free will, and sometimes we don’t make good choices. Others around us have free will, and they sometimes don’t make good choices. Still God is there beside us if we fall, always holding out his hand to lift us up.
God is our Creator (Jesus was the creator too ~ John 1:1-2). We are the work of his “hands.” How he loves us and cherishes us and cares for us, always to this very day.
