Isaiah 49:5-15: can a woman forget her nursing child? even if mothers forget, I will never forget you

{all readings for the day: Psalm 148; Isaiah 49:5-15; Matthew 12:46-50 }


Almighty God, you have given your only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and to be born of a pure virgin: Grant that I, who have been born again and made your child by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by your Holy Spirit; through my Lord Jesus Christ, to whom with you and the same Spirit be honor and glory; now and for ever. Amen. (source)

Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, and your faithfulness to the clouds.  Amen.
