REFLECTION

Teach me Your ways, O Lord!

When we speak this verse, from today’s Responsorial Psalm, we are asking God to teach us. We are asking the Lord to instruct us in His ways.

But are we ready to learn?

Can we put ourselves into “learning mode” and really pay attention to God?

Perhaps the key to learning, especially for adults, is to be humble. We have experience in life, yes. But we still have much to learn!

That beautiful and essential quality of humility is brought out in the last verse of the psalm that we speak today:

“He guides the humble to justice,
He teaches the humble His way.”


Perhaps, as adults, we need to pray today:

Teach me Your ways, O Lord,
and give me humility so that I can learn them.
