GOD IS OUR SHIELD AGAINST THE DECEPTION OF THE WORLD There are many false prophets in the world today, and even within our churches, many leaders seek to give us illusory peace and unity. They seek to compromise the truths of the gospel by focusing on the rewards but not the crosses; the privileges but not the discipline; life without death. How do we deal with such false prophets? Only God can shield us from the deception of the world and the Evil One.

INCREASING OUR COMMON SPACE Instead of imposing our views on others, we must seek to understand each other and see what values we hold in common. The more we recognize what we already have in common, the greater is our unity. Because we are a single human community, we have more in common than what divides us. If we realize that we are united as human beings in many ways, then it is not just easier to accept differences but to also appreciate our diversity. So, how, then, do we increase common space among all peoples?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer, and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
