Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Sant Polycarp
We Have No Idea
“Look at the plants in your garden, they always climb and try to reach higher. Their flowers wither quickly, but soon new ones open up. The withering of the flower does not show its uselessness because the chalice of withered flowers contains the fertile seed which reproduces the plant.” (Jesus) June 29, 1964)
Today’s Readings: Beloved: Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we shall go into such and such a town, spend a year there doing business, and make a profit”– you have no idea what your life will be like tomorrow. You are a puff of smoke that appears briefly and then disappears.(James 4)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, none of us know what may happen tomorrow. There is a saying that we make plans and You laugh! Lord how much better for us to store treasure in Heaven than to count on it on Earth! (Matthew 6:19-21). Lord we are puffs of smoke, flowers quickly fading and our lives are but a breath but joined with You it is not all useless as our souls contain the fertile seed which allows new plants to grow. These are the plants sown by our pouring into the lives of those we love!
