Today’s Readings: Psalm 131; 1 Samuel 6:1-18; John 14:25-31; 2 Corinthians 4:7-15; Psalm 116

We live in a society that rarely gives us a chance to relax and catch our breath. It seems as if we’re constantly being pushed to achieve. In our professional lives, there’s the constant pressure to achieve more and climb higher up the corporate ladder. In our financial lives, there’s the pressure to acquire more money. In our personal lives, there’s the pressure to cultivate deeper relationships. Even in our spiritual lives, it’s easy to want to grow more in one’s faith. Rarely do we get the opportunity to step back and appreciate what we have at any given moment. In fact, some would consider such a move lazy. Thankfully, the psalmist isn’t one of those people. In today’s first Psalm, the psalmist noted: “I’ve kept my feet on the ground; I’ve cultivated a quiet heart. Like a baby content in its mothers arms, my soul is a baby content” (Psalm 131:2). What a wonderful goal the psalmist sets before us – to reach a point in our lives where we can step out of the rat race and experience perhaps the most elusive state of all: contentment. Today I would encourage you to monitor yourself and see what sort of attitude you bring to life? Are you someone who is never satisfied with your life circumstance; or are you someone whose soul is like a baby: content? Til next time…
