A Meditation on the Glikhuta Text for Sunday, 15 January 2017

“As the sun is the joy of them who seek its daybreak, so is my joy the Lord; because He is my Sun, and His rays have lifted me up; and His light has dismissed all darkness from my face. — Odes of Solomon 14:1,2

Reflection

“Every true gift that is found in your hands is there because of the Father of Light who always gives good gifts.” — Teaching of Mir Izgadda 4:3

“You have given Your heart, Maran [Our Lord], to Your believers. Never will You be idle, nor will You be without fruits; for one hour of Your faith is more excellent than all days and years.” — Odes of Solomon 3:4,5

Reflection
Do I express gratitude for the blessings that the Father of Greatness bestows upon me each day? Do I verbally or mentally express, in prayer to God, my thankfulness for those benefits He made for me yesterday, has made for me today, and promised to make for me tomorrow? Do I thank God in advance of receiving His gifts?

Have I ever thought that God was slow in fulfilling His promises? Do I, on a regular basis, set aside time to reflect on the goodness and holiness of Almighty God? Have I wasted time this year on worldly affairs such as entertainment, when I could have used that time for God instead?

Do I have appreciation for the gifts given to me by the Father? Do I exhibit gratitude for the numerous blessings that I have received from the Kingdom of Light?
