“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Corinthians 3:18-19

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Make no mistake about it:

if any one of you thinks of himself as wise, in the ordinary sense of the word,

then he must learn to be a fool before he really can be wise.

Why?

Because the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God.

.

– 1 Corinthians 3:18-19 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

The worst kind of foolishness

is that of thinking one is wise when one in fact is not;

of not admitting one’s human frailty.

.

An exclusively human approach is always doomed to failure.

They are real fools those who believe that they know it all and keep God out of the equation

– they are taking the road to nowhere.

.

True wisdom

is when our desires and ambitions come in line with the plan God has for each one of us;

when we refer all to God before we act;

when we discern His will

and follow it gladly.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"We must learn to acquire the divine measure of things,

never losing our supernatural outlook,

and realising that Jesus makes use also of our weaknesses

to reveal His glory.

.

So, whenever your conscience feels the stirrings of self-love,

of weariness, of discouragement, or the weight of your passions,

you must react immediately and listen to the Master,

without letting the sad truth about our lives frighten us,

because as long as we live

our personal failings will always be with us"

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Watch over me, Lord, correct me when I’m wrong and carry me when I stumble and fall.

Lord, You know my thoughts and desires – please guide me to do only Your will.
