Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 26, A.D. 2001

Genesis 13:2,5-18
Psalm 15:2-5
Matthew 7:6,12-14

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What a powerful example of trust Abraham gives us in today's readings. His is not an on-again-off-again faith, but an habitual attitude of trust. At all times and in every circumstance, Abraham says a quiet, steady "yes" to God's inspirations. When he foresees trouble with his brother, Lot, he suggests they part -- but only after offering Lot first choice. As it turned out, Lot had only trouble with the inhabitants of Sodom, which lay in his territory, while Abraham was rewarded with the land "flowing with milk and honey", the land of Canaan.

If only we could live righteously as the Lord has commanded, we would experience the Lord's designs for us. To live in respect of God and neighbor brings untold blessings: this is the lesson of the day.

We praise you, Lord, for your Word!

- Msgr. Paul Whitmore (paulwhit@northnet.org)
