One Thing

Opening Prayer: One thing I ask of you, O Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in your house all the days of my life. That I may gaze on your beauty, O Lord, and to seek you in your temple. Amen. (Psalm 25:4)

Scripture: Luke 18:18-25, Luke 10:38-42

Journal: What is the one thing you lack? What is the one thing for you? How will you center your life around the one thing rather than the many things?

Reflection:

one thing

one thing
is needed
one thing
you still lack
one thing
i will seek

if this life
is meant
to be about
one thing

then why
do i seem
to miss
the point
so often

Prayer for the church, for others, for myself
