Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
October 12, A.D. 2005
Psalm 62:2-3, 6-7, 9
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
The readings of today focus primarily on the topics of 'love' and
'judgment', important topics to consider. In a way, one topic correlates
with the other, in that if you love others and God in an appropriate
manner, our own eternal judgment might be a positive one.
Any experienced teacher can relate numerous stories of how a student
will approach them at the beginning of the semester and inform the teacher
about the course grade that they need and expect. They say it with
conviction, as though if I tell the teacher early enough that is the grade
they will receive. Of course, the teacher immediately will inform the
student that the ability to receive any grade lies in the hands of the
student, not the teacher. This is the theme of the readings today in that
we determine our eternal destiny, now that we have been redeemed by Christ.
Our final judgment rests with us and how we use our free will and all the
numerous gifts God has bestowed upon us!
Todayıs readings also remind us to let God know frequently of our love
for Him. Good works are very important, but so is prayer.
