Hello Members and Friends of Heritage United Methodist!
Each day during the Disciple’s Heart series, I’ll be sending you the 5-minute “Lunchtime Lectio.” Lectio Divina means “divine reading,” and it’s the last part of each reading for the day in the Disciple’s Heart daily workbook.
- Read the day’s passage of Scripture slowly, listening for the resonance of each word in your soul as you read it.
- Read it through again, listening for the word or phrase that grabs your heart more than any other in the passage.
- Spend a moment in quiet prayer, simply saying the word or phrase over and over again, asking God to reveal to you why that one stood out.
- Finally, share in the comments below which word or phrase stood out to you. If you feel led to share, include a sentence or two about why God pointed you toward these words in particular.
Today’s Disciple’s Path Lectio Divina reading is 1Corinthians 9:24-27.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27, NIV)
Which word or phrase do you feel led to reflect on today? Please share in the comment section below!Print This Post
