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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 6, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Corinthians 4:6b-15
Psalm 145:17-18, 19-20, 21
Luke 6:1-5

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Scripture reflects that at the end of creation God rested. Obviously One who could create the universe was not in need of rest. Perhaps this part of the creation story was set as an example for us.

In the gospel today Christ was criticized for gathering corn from the fields on the Sabbath to feed His hungry disciples. Those attempting to trap Him pushed the usual traditions about the Sabbath to an extreme. Christ reminded them that He was Lord of the Sabbath.

Just as Christ took control of His use of the Sabbath, we can do the same. We can plan our time so as to take time for prayer, for family, for reading or perhaps a quiet walk. There's always work to do around a house, but there are six other days of the week! Let us be role models on keeping the Sabbath holy! It is an opportunity not to be wasted!
