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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 4, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Isaiah 58:9-14
Psalm 86:1-6
Luke 5:27-32

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Follow me."

Follow me. Simple, straightforward, direct. Don't precede me, don't anticipate me, don't direct me; but, Follow me.

Follow means many things. It means to trail behind. It means to adopt the ways of another. It also means to imitate. Jesus says to us very simply--"Do what I do. Follow me."

As we walk through Lent, let our footsteps be squarely in His own. Let our path not be the one we make ourselves, but the one blazed by our Savior. Let us be true followers of the Lord Jesus, walking so closely and so carefully behind Him that our own footprints cannot be seen because they are encompassed in His. A true follower will not be seen himself, but rather He will be seen in a true follower.

May God bless us all this Lent with the gift of being true followers of our Lord.
