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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

February 7, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Kings 3:4-13
Psalm 119:9-14
Mark 6:30-34

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today's reading from the Book of Kings gives us an opportunity to imagine what we might request if God said to us, as he did Solomon: "Ask something of me and I will give it to you."

What would it be?

It's a wonderful exercise. Akin to daydreaming about how you would spend multimillions if you won the lottery.

But more than a fanciful activity, it gives us the opportunity to identify who we are with all our needs and more importantly, who God is.

Like Solomon, do you recognize God's goodness to you? Are you a grateful, praising, humble person? Do you love Him so much, that, to discern His will and do what is pleasing to Him, is your only delight?

If you fall short, raise your voice in prayer, begging the Father to give you wisdom and love.

He will not refuse.
