Daily Meditation – Choosing Love over Hate

[Consider the contrast of love vs. hate and the choice we have to choose. See the story of Booker T. Washington below]

Booker T. Washington grew up in difficult circumstances but retained the vision of getting an education. Rather than feeling as a victim of difficult circumstances, he obtained an education and later went on to develop and grow a school in Tuskegee, AL with only minimal money and other resources. Instead of engaging in arguments and resentments, he chose to focus his energy on the vision of education. Among his many inspirational quotes is the one - “I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.”

Daily Meditation – Give Better Than You Get

- Consider your current dislikes of others and examine your own part. In doing so, apply the peace and direct guidance indicated below.

If possible, on your part, live at peace with all. Beloved, do not look for revenge but leave room for the wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." Rather, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head." Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good.

- Romans 12: 18-21

Daily Meditation - Letting Go

On the road of life, we inevitably hit the pot holes of life that can destroy us if we let them. This destruction is done via holding on to unforgiveness, certain attachments, or just our own selfish agenda. In this regard, consider the story of the monkey traps.

In the jungles of Africa, monkeys are captured alive and unharmed via the use of a heavy bottle with a long neck and sweet-smelling nuts within. Attracted by the scent of the nuts, the monkey sticks his hand in the bottle and grabs the nuts. Unwilling to let go of the nuts, the monkey is unable to remove his hand from the bottle. Subsequently, with the bottle being so heavy, the monkey is trapped since he can’t carry the bottle. Again, all that is needed is to just let go of the nuts. Instead, the monkey holds onto the nuts in exchange for a life of captivity.

- Let Go and Let God!

Daily Meditation – Healing of Crippled Woman on the Sabbath

[Consider being in the position of the crippled woman or perhaps just being in the crowd observing what was going on]

He was teaching in a synagogue on the sabbath. And a woman was there who for eighteen years had been crippled by a spirit; she was bent over, completely incapable of standing erect. When Jesus saw her, he called to her and said, "Woman, you are set free of your infirmity." He laid his hands on her, and she at once stood up straight and glorified God. But the leader of the synagogue, indignant that Jesus had cured on the sabbath, said to the crowd in reply, "There are six days when work should be done. Come on those days to be cured, not on the sabbath day." The Lord said to him in reply, "Hypocrites! Does not each one of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his ass from the manger and lead it out for watering? This daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound for eighteen years now, ought she not to have been set free on the sabbath day from this bondage?" When he said this, all his adversaries were humiliated; and the whole crowd rejoiced at all the splendid deeds done by him.

- Luke 13: 10-17
