Mar 23

Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Mat 19:16-21
16 Then someone came to him and said, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?”
17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
18 He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness;
19 Honor your father and mother; also, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
20 The young man said to him, “I have kept all these; what do I still lack?”
21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

Jesus tells us to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and might and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Are God’s priorities mine?
How can I get my priorities more in alignment with God’s?

—Pray to God in your own words
or perhaps use the prayer below.
Holy God
Thank you for your presence and your love.
You are creator of all.
Help me trust fully in you.
Help me love as you love.
Amen
