What might happen when we ask the Holy Spirit to guide our attention to what God would have us focus on when we read this scripture passage?
There’s a part in this passage that has become quite familiar to me over the past number of years, and at first I thought I’d just settle right in and enjoy that portion again today.  But instead I began by asking the Holy Spirit to highlight something that I needed to hear today.
So I read the scripture slowly, out loud, twice.  And I was drawn to the words in verse 16 where it says “everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him”.  Wait a minute. Doesn’t that fit with what resonated with me in yesterday’s reading?  Where my thoughts were drawn toward discovering my true self in relationship with God?  This is definitely worth digging into a bit more.
My prayer is as simple as asking, “God, what do you want me to know about our relationship through these words?”
What if we each prayed that today?
