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 – Imitate and follow Christ

So be imitators of God,as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.

- Ephesians 5:1-2

Daily Meditation – Christ as the example

For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps. "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." When he was insulted, he returned no insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten; instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross, so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

- 1 Peter 2:21-24

Daily Meditation – The Lilies of the Field

Consider the lily in that it does not choose its field nor does it have control over what grows around it such as thorns or crabgrass. Alternatively, it may be outshone by beautiful flowers or other plants. The lily has no control over rain or drought, it simply must endure. The lily came up with unique characteristics such as a certain shape, color and size. Consider the correlation of the lily to your life. To what extent is my life world from my making; how much is from God? Consider the little control over what surrounds us daily. Finally, so for all that has shaped me for better or worse, all that has given me joy and pain – I am precious in God’s eyes and honored and loved.

“How much of me is mine; how much can be God’s?”

- Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius – Prayer of Consideration: The Lilies of the Field
