Sweeter than Honey

Third Week of Lent
March 7, 2021

Opening
Lord, as we draw close to you in these moments, quiet us within that we may hear You and follow where you lead.

Reflection
As we continue on this Lenten journey, we are reminded abiding in the Word brings life.

Invitation
Read the scripture through slowly a few times. The second time, notice the word or phrase to which where you are drawn. The third time, reflect on how this word or phrase speaks to your life right now.

Scripture: Psalm 19:7-10, 14
The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living. Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb… May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Prayer of Response
Divine One, You have shown us the way of life It is found in You and in Your Word When we abide there, it permeates throughout our life and relationships as yeast does with the whole loaf. Forgive us when we move away from you and stray from Your life giving Word Your Word centers us and fills us It changes us and blesses us. Help us to feast on it that we may be nurtured and sustained through it. Transform us through it Divine One, That we may be reflections of your love and grace. Praise to You our good and gracious God, Amen.
