Daily Inspirations

Monday, September 1

He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.

and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the LORD.”
—LUKE 4:17–19
