Meditation
  • As a young boy growing up, sports were a huge part of my life, as they were for my dad.  I played all the same sports he did, even the same positions in those sports.  Many adults that knew my dad when he was younger would make comments to me like "you look just like your dad" when you throw the ball, shoot the ball, or run the bases.  I was proud to hear those compliments, just as I was so proud to be my father's son.

    In Matthew 11:25-30, Jesus explains that if you know Jesus the Son, you know God the Father.  They both are completely in sync and perfectly reflective of each other.  As Christians, we can be forever thankful for Jesus our Lord and Savior, and have complete trust that we now know God the Father, because of our faith and relationship in Jesus the Son.

Scripture(s)
  • Psalm 17:1-7

    A prayer of David.

    Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
        listen to my cry.
    Hear my prayer—
        it does not rise from deceitful lips.
    Let my vindication come from you;
        may your eyes see what is right.

    Though you probe my heart,
        though you examine me at night and test me,
    you will find that I have planned no evil;
        my mouth has not transgressed.
    Though people tried to bribe me,
        I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
        through what your lips have commanded.
    My steps have held to your paths;
        my feet have not stumbled.

    I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
        turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
    Show me the wonders of your great love,
        you who save by your right hand
        those who take refuge in you from their foes.
