Reflection

We seek wisdom. Our spirits long for insight into life. How can we try to see the world through the eyes of its Creator? Where do we find direction to guide our actions? We are invited to trust that Jesus’ life and words show the way to live with spiritual integrity. The cry “Come” is repeated in the liturgy again and again as we get closer to Christmas, insistent and hope-filled. “Come and show your people the way…”

Prayer

Fill me with your wisdom and guide me as I try to live my life with spiritual integrity.

Action

Today eflect on one experience in your life that fills you with doubts about how to act. Reflect on the teachings of Jesus and search for wisdom.
