knowGodToday’s Scripture

“For their wickedness blinded them, And they did not know the hidden counsels of God, (Wisdom 2:21-22).”

Daily Lent Reflection

This reading from the book of Wisdom talks of the misguided reasoning of the godless. It describes a judgemental way of viewing God-fearing people. Perhaps we could try to read this today with a degree of humility, placing ourselves in the reading as a godless person rather than our usual stance of God-fearing Christians.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will ask myself how it feels to place myself in this reading as a godless person? Do I judge others in that way? How might this challenge to the norm change my view of myself? How might the fruits of this reflection change the way I view other people?
