Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
June 27, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
2 Kings 19:9b-11, 14-21, 31-35a, 36
Psalm 48:2-3ab, 3cd-4, 10-11
Matthew 7:6, 12-14
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Today’s First Reading demonstrates the kind of doubt that is planted by opponents of the One True God. In this story however there are not just subtle threats against the sovereignty of God, but ones that make even a believer take pause.
Our enemy is always at work sowing the seeds of confusion, nipping us at our own personal Achilles Heel. Our response must be like that of Hezekiah. We must turn to the Lord in prayer, confessing our weakness, expressing our doubts and concerns. In return we will receive the help we desire. We will possess what is required to persevere in holiness and faithfulness.
“Our help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.”
