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 from Psalm 51.
1 Have mercy on me, O God,according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassionblot out my transgressions.2 Wash away all my iniquityand cleanse me from my sin.3 For I know my transgressions,and my sin is always before me.4 Against you, you only, have I sinnedand done what is evil in your sight;so you are right in your verdictand justified when you judge.
Which word or phrase do you feel led to reflect on today? Please share in the comment section below!Print This Post
