WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?

A QUESTION FROM CONGO

slide2

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul.

I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men who cannot save.

When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing.

slide3

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God,

The maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them – the Lord, who remains faithful forever.

He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.

The Lord sets prisoners free; the Lord gives sight to the blind; the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous.

slide4

The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the way of the wicked.

The Lord reigns forever, your God O Zion, for all generations.

(All)

Praise the Lord!
