#MondaysAtJesusFeet

Here we are, friends. It’s Monday.

It’s Monday and it’s time to sit and to savor the Word at Jesus’ feet.

We’re doing Lectio Divina every Monday and Thursday right here and today we’re spending time with Matthew 5:21-24 because here in the Sermon on the Mount is where we learn to walk out our faith.

There are some words of Jesus that require us to sit with them in prayer.

Because otherwise we’d rush right on by. It’s easier that way. We’d rather the internal mess stayed covered. We’d rather stay ignorant of our shadow sides.

 

In today’s scripture, we’re asked to uncover the root of anger in our lives and reconcile with our brother but sometimes those roots are buried. Deep. Today we give God permission to uncover what needs to be exposed. As we listen, we’re offered the truth that reconciliation leads to real Life.
