G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 05.23.12
‘There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.’
Paul exhorts us to support those in need—of whom there are many in our own neighborhood as well as in the wider community.
We all know those who mourn, who suffer a disability or are sick, frail or aged among us, and the media bring us knowledge of refugees and asylum seekers.
The psalm reminds us of the power God has given his people, but we need to be open to God’s whispering in our hearts, which often comes as twinges of conscience.
By reflecting on our day, we can revisit the people, the hours and moments, and reawaken the stirrings we experienced within.
Then, by quiet listening, we can discover whether we responded in love to these urgings or turned away.
Lord, help me to hear your voice in all moments of my day.
Acts 20:28-38. Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth—Ps 67(68):29-30, 33-36. John 17:11-19.
