Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
2 Kings 24:8-17
I am always ‘doing’ things, whether thinking, speaking, listening or performing actions. Sometimes I minimize obvious diversions from the ways of God. They always starts out as just small things, just this once, just for a minutes. Sure that God will understand, I give myself license to do my own thing – to do that which is evil in God’s sight. Do I know enough about God’s ‘good’ to constantly choose good over evil? Am I really convinced and prepared to be taught the thoughts, words and deeds that are good in God’s sight? Lord God, let me do what is good, not evil, in your sight.
Deliver us and forgive us our sins for your names’ sake. (Psalm 79:9)
Tend within your hearts the sacred fire that the Holy Spirit lights there.
St. Eugene de Mazenod.
