St. Francis Meditation Nine: “Teachings of Jesus”

I am blogging a daily meditation for the participants (and others!)
of my class on St. Francis…

The first Rule of Life that Francis took to the Pope on behalf of his order was:

“To follow the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ and to walk in his footsteps.”

What is your rule of life?  Ask God to show you how to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.  Do you know the teachings of Jesus well enough to follow them?  If not, how can you begin to study the teachings of Jesus? (April is offering a course on the Teachings of Jesus in the Spring!)


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.
