Let It Go...To Let It Grow

September 14, 2014

Jesus said all the law and prophets, in other words the entire Bible, can be wrapped up in this one declaration: Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and love your neighbor as yourself.

Today's Scripture: Exodus 3:1-12

Daily Scripture Reading

  1. Sunday: Exodus 3:1-2, Reflection: Moses was in great disorientation. After killing an Egyptian he fled to the desert. He was newly married and was working as a shepherd for his father-in-law. What, if any, disorientation is going on in my life right now?
  2. Monday: Exodus 3:3, Reflection: The burning bush is how God got Moses' attention. Seeing the bush as a metaphor, how does God get my attention?
  3. Tuesday: Exodus 3:4-5, Reflection: What does it mean that the ground I am standing on is Holy?
  4. Wednesday: Exodus 3:6, Reflection: In this account God is reassuring Moses of who God is and who God has been to his family. How would I recount my family connection with God?
  5. Thursday: Exodus 3:7, Reflection: Is there a cry of oppression, hunger, suffering, rejection, or injustice that you frequently hear? How might I be called to respond to that cry?
  6. Friday: Exodus 3:8-9, Reflection: "A land that's full of milk and honey" is a metaphor for a place on earth that looks like what to me? I may not be able to negotiate world peace, but how might I be called to be an agent of peace in my home and community?
  7. Saturday: Exodus 3:10-12, Reflection: Is there a call in my life that I need to "get going" with? If I know God is with me, then what is holding me back?
