Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 20, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Proverbs 3:27-34
Psalm 15:2-5
Luke 8:16-18

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

There's a popular little book around these days called "God' Little Instruction Book." It is full of useful little ideas and hints on living a good life.

But those who are familiar with Sacred Scripture know that God gave us an instruction book long ago which today we call Proverbs. This little book gives us instructions on relationships, raising children, money, food and, as we hear in today's first reading, how to treat our neighbor just to name a few.

It is interesting to note that the book of Proverbs contains 31 short chapters - one for each day of the month. So for those who are new to reading scripture, or for those who long time readers of the bible, God's instruction book can be read and learned one day at a time, and enjoyed month after month.
