This time of the year brings a crescendo in the air. As I came across these words I thought they clothed this feeling well. I trust you may share the same exhilaration. May we enjoy this week in the spirit of these words. Let’s look beyond our perceptions of the “baby Jesus,” and even the form of the man communing in spirit with the glorious Spirit of the Lord! Let’s open to the myriad of ways to so commune knowing the SOMETHING MORE in this life.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
These words of Psalm 1 bring to mind how we can live a life that is delighting. It is very good
to catch ourselves when we find ourselves in agreement with that which is distorted and not
of the character of what is true. It is also good not to stand in the way of blocking the rightful
expression of integrity through ourselves and others. Lastly, whenever we find ourselves scorning
something it is also good to catch ourselves from falling into the destructive patterns of hate.
As we so catch ourselves and stay true to an integrity that allows for the refreshing and renewing currents
of God to move through us we are indeed delighted. Let us so live!
