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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

August 31, A.D. 2004


Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Corinthians 2:10-16
Psalm 145:8-14
Luke 4:31-37


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God...

Today's reading from Saint Paul to the Corinthians, I think is a beautiful one. It highlights the folly of human thinking where we split spiritual and rational thinking when in reality they cannot be split because we are in essence, spiritual creations. Paul tells us that we have been given the spirit of God so that we may understand the things given to us freely by God.

While we can be quick to notice lack in our lives, let us today consider all the wonderful blessings of our world which God bestows on us in abundance...the beauty of nature...the gift of our human faculties, the gift of life itself...Let us thank Him for the gift of Love which energises us and gives hope and purpose to our lives.

Amen, Amen!
