Thursday, October 30. Read Matthew 23:1-12. Who can you think of that displays the kind of humility Jesus is calling for? How would you like to learn from their example? Pray this scripture using Audio Lectio.
Words from The Word: [God] turns a desert into pools of water, a parched land into springs of water. And there [God] lets the hungry live, and they establish a town to live in; they sow fields, and plant vineyards, and get a fruitful yield.
-Psalm 107:35-37 (NRSV)
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture with us using a guided meditation on Matthew 23:8-12. “The greatest among you will be your servant.”
Spiritual Tools: The spiritual practice for this week is consideration of the article, Visio Divina. Contemplate an image.
