I am blogging a daily meditation for the participants (and others!)
of my class on St. Francis…
These are part of the words from the Gospel of Matthew that St. Francis read to those entering the order:
Jesus said . . . “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, then come, follow me”
Jesus also told the disciples to “be perfect.” St. Francis preached that we should strive for biblical perfection. Pray over Jesus’s definition of perfection. In what ways is Jesus calling you to “be perfect?”
April describes herself as a Red Letter Christian who writes about scripture and spiritual disciplines. See her latest book, James in the Suburbs: The Disorderly Parable of the Epistle of James. Great for an individual read or group Bible studies! You can follow her blog by clicking on the three dots in upper right hand of this page and scrolling down.
