Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 25, A.D. 2001

: Acts 18:9-11
Psalm 47:2-7
John 16:20-23

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

How easy it is to stray from Jesus! The world is full of distractions and preoccupations which can obscure our path and delay our communion with Jesus. In our humanity we can be easily led down paths which do not reflect the example of Jesus but at these time we are oblivious to our folly and rarely think of the consequences of our actions. It is because of our spiritual blindness, that we need to place Jesus in the first place in our lives every morning before we start the day. It is only through prayer, that we are given the grace to discern what leads to salvation and what leads to destruction.

Today, let us renew our pledge to place Jesus first and foremost in our lives. It is only by doing this that we can achieve our true potential as sons and daughters of Christ.

Amen.
