The way of the Lord is upright

Friday, 11-07-2014

St. Benedict

Readings of the day:

Hosea 14:2-10,
Psalm 51:3-4, 8-9, 12-14, 17,
Matthew 10:16-23


The way of the Lord is upright, and whoever wish to thread this path, whoever wish to know him, must in turn live an upright heart. It is a must, else the heart would be far from where the Lord is. Eyes may be set on it, but if the heart sway from it, the sense and the heart in discordance would lead the feet away from it.

It is a big challenge that is cast upon us in this journey of faith, a challenge based on love and fidelity; one which we need help for, help from him who is right and also help from our fellow brethren; those who have walked this path and those whom we walk with, together, we would reach the promise land.

God knows we can’t do it all by ourselves, that is why, his Spirit is always there to guide us along the way, like a stranger going to a land filled with bliss, we need a guide outside of us to lead our way. May we never forget God’s spirit lead our way.

One prayer then we should always set our heart on is that, God should make us know his ways, live out his commands and follow him wholeheartedly. There is a promise given to the man who seek God’s face: I will be as the dew to israel; he shall blossom as the lily, he shall strike root as the poplar, his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive, and his fragrance like lebanon.

Lord, help us to seek your face and to walk with an upright heart to your place.

Peace and Love of Christ!
