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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 28, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ephesians 2:19-22
Psalm 19:2-3, 4-5
Luke 6:12-16

A reflection on today's Scripture:

The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament proclaims His handiwork! (see Psalm 19:2)

Long before the existence of modern science and our powerful equipment that allows us to peer into the smallest parts of creation, the wisdom of God had been poured into David who wrote that line in Psalm 19. David knew that all creation showed the handiwork of God and further, that this was told "day unto day and night unto night" without a voice ever being heard!

Now we know about the cellular makeup of living things and about the atomic structures of all things. We can see the intricacies of nature and view the development of a human being from conception through birth. We can gaze into the depths of seemingly endless space and view the wonders God has painted amongst the stars. We can plunge to the depths of the oceans and view life where no life was thought to exist.

What more proof do we need? Our God is the Almighty, Powerful, Ever-living, Ever-loving God. He has left His imprint on all things. As David noticed the marvels of His creation, we too should take time to notice and praise Him for all His wonderful creation.
