When you see the word ?meditation,? what do you think about? Maybe you think about people who sit in strange positions and say words over and over again. But that is not Christian meditation.
Christian meditation is thinking about what God says in the Bible. This means to think about what God?s words mean and how these words can help you. Verse 11 of our Bible Reading says, ?I study your teachings very carefully. Why? So I will not sin against you.?
Here is one way to try Christian meditation. First, choose one or two Bible verses. Then read the verses very carefully. Next, pray and ask God what He wants you to learn from the verses. Read the verses again one or two times. Finally, decide how you can obey what these verses say.
I encourage you to start meditating on God?s Word today. Spend time praying and reading His Word, the Bible.
