Scripture Meditation: The Earth Is Full of God’s Love

Today’s Scripture Reading

“The earth, O LORD, is full of your love; instruct me in your statutes.”
Psalm 119:64

Meditation

When I think of the world these days, I can very easily focus on the anger, fear, and violence that seems to run unchecked sometimes. Today’s Psalm reminds us that God is not only present, but God’s love fills our world.

If I believe in God, do I believe in a loving, merciful God who wants nothing more than for me to pray? Or do I let my imagination create images of an angry, violent, and petty God who is waiting for me to finally mess up enough to justify banishing me from his presence forever?

As you approach God in prayer today, consider that God’s love is abundantly present throughout our world. What if experiencing God’s love is made possibly by overcoming the barriers to it?

Personal Reflection

What keeps me from experiencing God’s abundant love?
