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

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 12, A.D. 2001

: 2 Corinthians 1:18-22
Psalm 119:129-133,135
Matthew 5:13-16

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What a rich treasury of thoughts for meditation today! Saint Paul urges the Corinthians to always give a total "Yes" to the Lord, through the commitment of the heart, mind, and whole person. We are always to be "yea-sayers" in our acceptance of God's Will in our lives. Indeed, we are to be willing in our acceptance of the circumstances of suffering and challenge that He either allows or directly wills. And the famous Serenity Prayer is of great help here: "to change what we can, and to accept what we cannot; and to beg God in His Wisdom to know the difference."

And what wonderful food for thought in Christ calling us both "salt" and "light". Question: "How am I salt and how am I light to the micro-world of family, friends, and workplace into which the Lord has placed us?" Indeed, serious food for thought this day. Amen.
