Lectio Divina Reading

May 3, 2003

Luke 12:4-7

‘To you my friends I say: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. I will tell you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has the power to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, he is the one to fear. ‘Can you not buy five sparrows for two pennies? And yet not one is forgotten in God’s sight. Why, every hair on your head has been counted. There is no need to be afraid: you are worth more than many sparrows."

Psalm 59:17…my stronghold is God, the God who loves me faithfully. 

For further reading, Exodus, Chapter 12 

Closing Prayer

Faithful God, you have lavished us with love. Keep us ever mindful that you keep your promises. On our difficult days help us to remember that you are a refuge for those who need shelter, a comfort for those who feel empty and poor in spirit. On our joyful days fill us with a deep sense of thanksgiving as we experience your everlasting hove. Help us to share your graciousness with all those who need a touch of generous love. AMEN.

On your own:

  • Make a list of God’s promises to you as you have come to know and believe them in your life. Then make a list of your promises to God as you have come to know and believe them in your life.

  • What do you find most difficult in your attempts to be faithful? What is the price you pay?
