This people honors me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me;
In vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines human precepts.
– Mark 7 : 1 – 13
|February 7, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel|
True worship begins with humility, when the soul recognizes that it possesses no good in and of itself, but that all of its goodness comes from God.
My Lord and my God, take from me everything that distances me from you.
My Lord and my God, give me everything that brings me closer to you.
My Lord and my God, detach me from myself to give my all to you.
Lord, thank you for my life and all the good things you have given me. Help me to realize that you have created everything and that all I have is from you. May I use all I have to serve others and as a means to come closer to you, the source of all good.
