The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

SATURDAY, May 15                  [Pachomius of Tabenissi]

Luke 9:43a And all were astounded at the greatness of God.

Sometimes we forget to be astounded. We forget to embrace childlike wonder and amazement at things we don’t understand, as if everything were meant to be understood.

In this passage, Jesus has just healed a boy and proven the wonders of God—and all were astounded. When was the last time you were astounded? Perhaps it’s not that we forget to be astounded but rather that we forget that we are allowed to be. It is okay—encouraged even—to be amazed, even if we don’t understand everything.
