Power, Truth, Pretenders

Dear Reader:  This post is formatted differently from past reflections – a format I began on November 23, 2012 to facilitate a season of listening.  The explanation for the seasonal change is found here, in the November 23 post.

Lectionary Readings:  AM Psalm 131, 132, [133]; PM Psalm 134, 135
Zech. 13:1-9; Eph. 1:15-23; Luke 19:11-27

Paused at these verses today – oh how I would if I could share what the Spirit has me thinking about by His Word this day.  Not yet.  Not the time.

I am sharing, however,  another audio track which I suppose reveals a small part of which bunny trail I was set upon this morning.  The Pretender  by Jackson Browne quite often comes to mind when the Scripture speaks about truth, love, beauty and the powers that work against – legal tender and lies.

Without saying one word more, here are the verses I’ll be praying on today:

Psalm 131: 2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.

Psalm 132: 16 Its priests I will clothe with salvation,
and its faithful will shout for joy.

Luke 19: 12So he said, ‘A nobleman went to a distant country to get royal power for himself and then return.

Ephesians 1: 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power.
