Tuesday, March 11. Read Genesis 12:1-4. God promises to bless all nations through Abram’s descendants. What blessing have you received from the past? What blessing would you like your descendants to pass on?
Words from The Word: “I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.”
- Genesis 12:2, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture with us: John 3:1-8. You must be born anew.
Spiritual Tools: What if God does not demand us to contort our spirits into other people’s versions of us, but to recognize our life task as living what is uniquely given to us? As Lovingly Fitted.
