Daily Meditation – Live out the magis

Consider the idea of the magis which is from the Latin word meaning more or greater. In giving your day to God, live out the magis for God.  Whatever your endeavor today, both large and small, exciting or boring, give it your all for the greater glory of God.

Daily Meditation – Measurements for Salvation

Consider the following excerpt and how each present moment provides such opportunity

…I would always remind parents that according to Jesus, they have, above all the others, the greatest chance of salvation. Why? Because in the famous Mathew 25 passage, Jesus gives us the only measurements for salvation – and all of them “in the world!” They are what we call today the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. The beautiful part, I remind parents, it that they are built right into the secular, worldly, family life. You can’t escape them if you wanted to. Parents, in raising children, can’t avoid heaven. Feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, etc. They are all right there in the home (not the sanctuary). So, for example, in schematic form, it works like this:

- 2am bottle – giving drink to the thirsty
- Diapering – clothing the naked
- Cough medicine to the bedroom – visiting the sick
- Dad, can you help me with my homework? – instructing the ignorant
- Mom, what’ll I wear? – counseling the doubtful
- The cat died – burying the dead
- Hearing the kid’s prayer – praying for the living and the dead (endlessly)
- Are you still in the bathroom? – Visiting the imprisoned.

Daily Meditation – Jesus Revealed (& the enthusiasm of Peter)

[The following meditation has many dynamics from Jesus being revealed to the disciples, to the power of Jesus, and finally the enthusiasm of Jesus (and perhaps other themes and insights as well). Place yourself in this passage and sense all that surrounds you.]

After this, Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias . He revealed himself in this way. Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee's sons, and two others of his disciples.

Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We also will come with you." So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore; but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, "Children, have you caught anything to eat?" They answered him, "No." So he said to them, "Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something." So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the number of fish. So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad, and jumped into the sea. The other disciples came in the boat, for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards, dragging the net with the fish.

When they climbed out on shore, they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and bread. Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you just caught." So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore full of one hundred fifty-three large fish. Even though there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, "Come, have breakfast." And none of the disciples dared to ask him, "Who are you?" because they realized it was the Lord. Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them, and in like manner the fish.

This was now the third time Jesus was revealed to his disciples after being raised from the dead.

(John 21: 1-14)
