Pentecost +10 Sunday – C2
Psalm 107:1-9, 43 or Psalm 49:1-12
Steadfast love endures.
This may mean that "a little dab will do you" - sort of like one of those funeral jewelry pieces where you can keep a bit of the cremains of a loved one close to you.
This may mean that you need to constantly enlarge your ability to receive more and more of this steadfast love because it just keeps coming and we can't give it away quickly enough. When we don't keep up with being as steadfast in loving others as G*D is steadfast in loving us that the only way it can be released is with our death.
I don't mean to lessen the lesson about real resources that need to be distributed, but part of the reason we feel we never have enough resources is because we haven't given away enough love.

mortals cannot abide in their pomp
so says the psalmist
I ain't got no stinkin' pomp!
sending an escort with myself?
with more emphasis upon the escort than myself
with my old beat-up hat?
with my distain of all things fashionable?
oh, that's my pomp
nope, it won't abide
nor will I covered in my pomp
how 'bout you?
