Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Tuesday of the Eleventh Week of Ordinary Time
His Kind of Perfect
If we refer to the Flame of Love, the Lord Jesus will enlighten our intellect to know what we must do, for example, how we can choose between two things and which is the most perfect and represents the Will of God.” (Elizabeth) (July 11, 1975)
Today’s Readings: For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? Do not the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brothers only, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same? So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we all try so hard to be perfect, but it is perfect the way the world defines it. Along the way it can seem that our love can grow so cold. We make idols out of so many things in our lives and along the way we lose the ability to see others the way You see them. Lord, I believe You are telling us that You want Your kind of perfect- the one that loves without counting the cost. The one that drives out all fear (1 John 4:18). The one that lives the Gospel message we have been reading from the Sermon on the Mount. Lord, it is only Your Grace that makes us that kind of perfect- Lord rain down Your Flame of Love through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we would know and love Your Perfect Will!
