Readings: Leviticus 23:1-8; Luke 22:1-13; Psalm 31: 9-16
Reflection on Leviticus 23:1-8, Psalm 31:9-16, and Luke 22:1-13 As I read the three passages I was given I could not see how they related to the problems we were asked to address. Upon reflection of these readings, I found the common thread to each was the undying faith and belief of each individual. Our Nation was founded on the Faith of our Fathers, and it seems that our Faith has been eroded by man and material things. We are powerless to meet the needs of others until we find a way, through God, to regenerate our own belief. How can we meet the needs of others when our hearts are filled with doubt and we are searching for ways to meet our own needs? Our God is still among us and will guide us to do His bidding if only we will open our hearts and seek to do His will.
Lord we are thankful for the many gifts received from thee. As we go through each day may we be aware of the needs of others and open our hearts and trust God to show us the way to meet these needs. Amen.
