Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 64:9
“…they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done.”
Do you ponder things? I know I do.
I suppose it is something of an occupational hazard (or blessing, depending on your perspective) of people in ministry.
We like to proclaim and ponder and hopefully others find what we say worth pondering and proclaiming in return.
Others don’t spend a lot of time meditating or reflecting – they are action oriented – “Get something done!” is their motto.
But I would argue that spending some time prayerfully pondering something is doing something – something very important. Especially if what one has learned is shared with others in a spirit of love. That’s the proclaiming part. It’s not about proclaiming for the sake of making a lot of noise. It’s about sharing God’s word and wisdom with others for the sheer joy of it.
So, I would invite you to do a little healthy pondering this week – spiritual pondering to be exact.
Do what the Psalmist invites us to do:
“Let the righteous rejoice in the Lord and take refuge in him; let all the upright in heart praise him!”
Consider the ways God
- Listens to you
- Strengthens you
- Guides you
- Forgives you
- Loves you
That’s worth pondering about.
Prayer: Lord, for all the blessings of this day, I give thanks. AMEN.
