Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

July 7, A.D. 2007

Genesis 27:1-5, 15-29
Psalm 135:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6
Matthew 9:14-17

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Scripture teaches us that there is a time for all things. There is a time for joy and laughter and a time for quiet and reflection. There is a time for work and a time for rest.

Jesus tells us today that there is a time for all things and it is through Him that we are to experience all things. There is a time for celebrating with the Lord and a time to fast and pray. We should come to Him in times of great feasting, while at other times we should come to Him in repentance and sorrow for our sins.

Jesus is the fulfillment of the law. For centuries the peoples had practiced their faith in strict adherence to the law, in frequent periods of fasting and prayer. However, the Lord brought the fullness of a relationship with God to us all, giving us times of great rejoicing. As Jesus said, He came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly. (see John 10:10)
