“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 10:21

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit

and said,

“I praise You, Father,

Lord of heaven and earth,

because You have hidden these things

from the wise and the intelligent

and have revealed them to infants;

yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will.”

.

– Luke 10:21 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

It is not that Jesus is against the wise and intelligent.

.

Jesus knows, however,

that those who arrogantly regard themselves as having a superior intellect,

become so full of themselves,

so haughty and proud,

that even in matters of religion

they loftily consider others to be inferior

and, possibly, less worthy!

.

Such persons, invariably,

fail to apply Jesus’ constant call for humility to themselves

and, therefore, they can never go

beyond the human realm in their understanding of Christ.

Their attitude

blocks having a genuine personal relationship with Jesus.

.

The humble, on the other hand,

(and to be humble does not mean to lack intellect)

experience Christ in a very special personal manner,

as the Spirit faithfully reveals to them

that which is otherwise beyond human understanding

…that which brings deep and indescribable joy!

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, teach me.

Come Holy Spirit, guide me.
