Imagine that you are in a beautiful cabin in the mountains. The air is clear, the mountains encircle you like someone giving you a hug. From this wonderful spot, listen to verses 10 and 11 from today’s reading from the Book of Proverbs.
“Wisdom will enter your mind, and knowledge will fill you with delight. Discretion will guard you; understanding will protect you.” Even though these words are abstract, imagine that you are tasting them. Let today be a special day of reflection on your life, taking the mountain images as ones of retreat, reflection and keeping what you really want in life in line with the daily inspirations of God’s holy Word. Think, reflect, and maybe write out what some of these Proverbs mean to you in your own words.
Tuesdays are dedicated to the the History and Writings of the Hebrew Scriptures.
