Daily Reading and Meditation

Posted on July 9th, 2016

Readings & Meditations

“A Plumb Line For Our Life”

Scripture: Isaiah 2:1-­‐5  (NRSV)
The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. In
days to come the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established as the
highest of the mountains,  and shall be raised above the hills; all the nations shall stream to it. Many peoples shall come and say, “Come, let us 

go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways  and that we may walk in his paths.”  For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of
the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not
lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of  Jacob, come, let
us walk in the light of the Lord! 

Meditation:  Watch 

As Advent begins, we center our thoughts around the coming of Christ.  Yes, we reflect back on that Christmas when Jesus was born.  But we also look forward to His return!   We are ever watchful in our lives, looking for where the Lord may be.  In the face of a child as they wait in line to see Santa Claus, or in the face of a Santa Claus who just paid for someone’s groceries or gifts.  We see the face of Jesus in those that are broken in this world and those that seem to have it all.  But no matter where you may encounter the spirit of Christ this season, we are all watching and waiting for His return.  We know that God is in control, no matter what the circumstance, and that He has fixed the appointed time for Jesus’ return.  We just have to be patient and watchful.  And while we’re waiting, we can practice being the hands and feet of Christ in this world.
