Day 225, Evening
Today’s evening meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.
We ought to fly away from earth to heaven as quickly as we can; and to fly away is to become like God, as far as this is possible; and to become like him is to become holy, just, and wise.
As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness.
Have you seen that curious bird, the quail? We have many of them where we live. When we are driving down the lane, they won’t get out of the way. They won’t fly. They try to outrun the car. It is only when they conclude their number is up that they start flying. They know how to fly, but they would rather stay on the ground.
Most of us are like that. But our wings are there; we have only to spread them to experience the exhilaration of soaring into the sky and looking down to see all life as one. (WLB)
Covenant-making God, thank you for promising to be my God and the God of all who trust in you. As I live out this life with you, may it be marked by deep trust and open gratitude. Amen. (WC)
