Daily Meditation – True Wisdom

Qualities of earthbound wisdom – “But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. Wisdom of this kind does not come down from above but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every foul practice.” – James 3: 14-16 [See also – 2 Corinthians 12:20 ]

Qualities of the wise man – “But the wisdom from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without inconstancy or insincerity. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace.” - James 3:17-18 [See also – Galatians 5: 22-23]

Daily Meditation - Ask, then listen

God is your Father. He is a loving Father with wonderful plans for His children. Regardless of the greatest plan you can put together for yourself with the greatest power of your imagination, His plan is better, greater, more exciting, and more rewarding. Believe in His plan. Ask Him to reveal His plan to you. Then listen…

Daily Meditation – Everything is Precious

Those who have abandoned themselves to God always lead mysterious lives and receive from God exceptional and miraculous gifts by means of the most ordinary, natural and chance experiences in which there appears to be nothing unusual. The simplest sermon, the most banal conversations, the least erudite books become sources of knowledge and wisdom to these souls by virtue of God’s purpose. This is why they carefully pick up the crumbs which clever minds tread underfoot, for to them everything is precious and a source of enrichment
