With Praise in Our Mouths

“Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in its maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their king. Let them praise his name in dance, make music with tambourine and lyre. For the Lord takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, cry out for joy on their couches, with the praise of God in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hands, to execute the judgments decreed for them—such is the glory of all God’s faithful. Hallelujah!”

After the loss of her husband to cancer, one single mother of two pre-teens struggled to provide for the three of them. She had a wonderful support group and knew her loving Heavenly Father, so she met life’s challenges with joyful courage. After she completed her second shift, she often watched HGTV and looked through decorating books she checked out from the local library. She could only dream of providing a home like those typically portrayed. One year, on a lark, she entered a televised contest with a dream home as the grand prize. The night of the contest reveal, she heard a knock on her door, amazed to realize she had won. She danced and honored God with his praise in her mouth.          

 

This devotional article is taken from the Total Stewardship curriculum of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, one of dozens of devotional pieces that support resources designed for the Stewardship of Prayer, the Stewardship of Ministry, and the Stewardship of Finance. The material purposefully aligns with the annual Catholic liturgy, the Third Edition of the Roman Missal and the Revised Edition of the New American Bible. We invite you to contact us for more information concerning ways the Total Stewardship curriculum might be used to serve your parish and your parishioners.

Stewardship Today is a monthly devotional newsletter designed to assist Catholics everywhere in developing a greater understanding of the role of stewardship in everyday life.
All we are, and all we possess, are gifts from God for our use and for the blessing of others. Through wise stewardship, we invest our time, our talents and our treasures to the glory of God.
