Lectio Divina Reading for February 2021


February 4, 2021

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear;

For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears

Has not reached perfection in love.

We love because he first loved us.

1 John 4: 18-19

 

Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear;

Only love can do that.

Hatred paralyzed life; love releases it.

Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.

Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

He said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under a bed,

and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed;

nor is anything secret, except to come to light. Let anyone with ears to hear listen!”

And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear; the measure you give will be

the measure you get, and still more will be given you. For to those who have, more will be given;

and from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.”

Mark 4: 21-25

“When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues

and on street corners so that others may see them. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.

But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret.

And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. In praying, do not babble like the pagans,

who think that they will be heard because of their many words.

Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Matthew 6: 5-8

I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation.

The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.

This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Save us, we beseech you O Lord! O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.

We bless you from the house of the Lord.

Psalm 118: 21-26
