Stick with it

The 9th Sunday after Pentecost

Read up on what happened before you were born;
     dig into the past, understand your roots.
Ask your parents what it was like before you were born;
     ask the old-ones, they’ll tell you a thing or two.

~ Deuteronomy 32:7 (MSG)

Hold on to the pattern of sound teaching that you heard from me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. ~ 2 Timothy 1:13 (CEB)

Stick with what you've been taught about our loving God's faithfulness to his people.
Almighty God, you have been faithful from generation to generation. Even when we flake out you keep your word. Thank you. Help me to be more consistent in the way in which I apply the truth that has been passed along to me. I can be kind of spotty. But I want to live according to the good news of Christ Jesus, which I have inherited. Amen.
