Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 6, A.D. 2002

Isaiah 29:17-24
Psalm 27:1,4,13-14
Matthew 9:27-31


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

During this beautiful Season of Advent we hear again how God will put things straight and make all things new. No wrongful or disturbing thing will prevail, only the goodness and mercy of our God. The thought of such a time is what keeps me going, gives me hope.

God must have known that we would need encouragement along the way - some words, some vision to fix our hearts on. In this season of ever-brightening light, may we be people of gratitude who never fail to acknowledge God's goodness to us and who willingly and eagerly share it with others, giving them hope.

The question becomes: how will we communicate to others who have lost sight of the vision, whose eyes are clouded by the deceptions of our time? What words, what action, what prayerful attitudes will be the spark to light the small, but sure way for others to seek and find our God?

For me, the challenge of this season is not only that I want one thing, (to dwell in the house of the Lord and gaze upon his loveliness forever), but that everyone might want it too.

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
