In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
Lord, the wicked are full of evil, abusing power and reviling you. They do not seek you. They do not have room for you in their lives and work.
Is there room for you in my daily work?
Is there room for you to when I’m leading a meeting or cranking out a spreadsheet?
Is there room for you when I am angry with a colleague or disappointed in someone I supervise?
Is there room for you when my boss or a customer treats me with disrespect?
Is there room for you when I consider my to-do list and formulate my daily priorities?
Is there room for you when I dream about my future, when I make plans for my career?
In my work, today and tomorrow, is there room for you? Amen.
Ponder Throughout the Day:
Is there room for God in my work today?
For Further Reflection:
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:17).
