How Can We Actually Love People Like Jesus?
In You, O Lord, I take refuge;
Give me the grace to turn a deaf ear to the voices that say to me:
“Flee like a bird to your mountain,
for behold, the wicked bend the bow;
they have fitted their arrow to the string
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
if the foundations are destroyed,
what can the righteous do?”
I know that You, O Lord, are in Your holy temple;
Your throne is in heaven;
Your eyes see, Your eyelids test the children of man.
You, Lord, test the righteous,
but Your soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
You, O Lord, are righteous;
You loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold Your face.
