The meditations are rich in substance and offer a wide range of witness and experiences. Each month's meditation is written by a different author. Learn more in the Forward Day By Day Readers' Guide.
John 5:19 Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise.”Every so often my son, Mark Anthony, will do or say something, and I know it is something that he has seen me or his mother doing. When I observe our son, I am reminded of a saying: children live what they learn and learn what they live.
As both children and parents, we know how much we are like our own parents and how much our children are like us. We are truly imitators of each other. When I observe our lives as faithful people, I am reminded of another saying: faith is caught, not taught.
