Wouldn’t That Make God Smile?

April 25, 2017

Oops.

I mis-read, or more accurately mis-guessed at, a word I couldn’t see.

We were in the middle of a worship service, praying A Covenant Prayer in The Wesleyan Tradition. There was a screen I was reading, but part of it was obscured by light fixture hanging down from the ceiling.

So it was that rather than reading “Let me be employed by thee, or laid aside for thee,” I heard my voice through the PA system pray these words: “Let me be enjoyed by thee” and I stopped speaking.

It was one of those Oops Moments.

Or was it?

Psalm 19:14 says, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord.”

If we’re “pleasing in [God’s] sight,” wouldn’t that make God smile?

Either way, Yes or No, it’s an answer with implications.

Is what we’re saying and doing today pleasing God?
