Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of May 20, 2012
- Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of May 20, 2012
As one of the on-going ministries of Chi Rho Press,
here is a selection from our book of daily devotions,
"Living as the Beloved: One Day at a Time," by the
Rev. Dr. Sandra Bochonok.
Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's
meditation. We hope you will be blessed. Thank you
for forwarding this to your friends.
Jesus taught, "But strive first for the kingdom of
God and God's righteousness, and all these things
will be given to you as well. So do not worry about
tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.
Today's trouble is enough for today."
My beloved Grandmother would often sing, "One day at
a time, dear Lord, one day at a time." Today's
scripture was one of her favorite Bible verses.
Stay with today. Live in the moment and serve God
one day at a time. Do the best you can with what
you have and trust God to provide for your needs.
Grandma understood that for she worked hard to
provide for her family while praying for her daily
bread. Even in the North American Great Depression,
there was always some food to share with others who
Many people do not know what it means to live and
work for the "kingdom of God and God's righteousness."
Jesus is giving us a wonderful roadmap of how to live.
These teachings are timeless, multicultural, multi-
generational, and vitally needed for our world today.
God, thank you for this reminder to stay with today's
concerns. Help us live one day at a time through the
power of your words. Amen.
Grace and peace,
Chi Rho Press
