Reflection and Action

Jeremiah 7:23
This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk in all the ways that I command you, so that you may prosper.

“The kingdom of God is at hand.” Jesus said this so that we would know that “God’s reign” (read God’s dream for you) is possible in this very moment. Our Loving Creator wants each of us to be a part of building the kingdom of God…using our gifts and talents to make a more compassionate world. But it’s not possible if we are holding on to past hurts or are constantly looking ahead or worrying about the future. What are the “ways” God is asking us to walk in now so that we truly prosper…as in grow, become whole…become our true selves? Are we listening to God’s voice?
