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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

February 9, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Isaiah 58:9b-14
Psalm 86:1-2, 3-4, 5-6
Luke 5:27-32

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Are you still considering what to do that is special for this Lenten Season?

The readings of the day give us a powerful suggestion, as highlighted in the Psalm:

"Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth." (see Psalm 86:1-6)

We can spend more attention to what God wants us to do, but that takes developing a habit of listening for God in the events of each day.

Recently this writer had a somewhat uncomfortable discussion with another person about truthfulness, with my thought being that some "lying" had occurred. The other party retorted that I was viewing my own perception of "truth" which was, of course, not the same as theirs. It was something I had never thought much about other than to think that there is but one truth, and we are guided to its meaning by adhering to the teachings of Christ.

What is truthfulness?
Can we each have our own version of it?
Christ is Truth and He is One.
What is truthfulness to you?

O Lord, guide me that I may walk in YOUR truth!
