Happy Thursday to all.
The weathercasters last night and even early this morning were confidently predicting heavy thunderstorms here today. Later, that was pushed back to begin at 3 p.m. But they missed us by a fair amount. I don't want to be too snarky, but it's people like that who loudly predict the temperature of the entire earth 80 - 100 years from now. Forgive me if I am a bit skeptical.
As I compose this, I am seeing a temperature range within a 30 mile radius between 87.1° N and 73.6°. Which will be recorded?
Our readings in the Old Testament are Psalms 70, 71, and 72.
Now, Psalm 72 ends with the line The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. Well, the collection of the Psalms includes quite a few attributed to David, and those attributed to him are not in one lump. Those thought or known to be attributed to David are Psalms 2-9, 11-41. 51-65, 68-70, 86, 95, 101, 103, 108-110, 122, 124, 131, 133, 138-145. Moses is credited with Psalm 90. The authorship of 48 of the Psalms is unknown.
The reading in the New Testament is chapter 4 of the Epistle to the Romans. Justification by faith. VERY important!
