Vain Repetition

The danger of words is that they lose their power to inspire and involve our minds.  We think we are engaged, but we are actually just repeating words. (Matt 6:7)  The Bible speaks of “meditating” on God’s word (Psalm 1).  Try it today.  Choose one word or phrase in the Lord’s prayer and repeat it to yourself several times (out loud if possible).  Write it down.  Return to it during the day.  The Lord will give you powerful insights as you “reflect” on His word. (2 Timothy 2:7).  It will be your work and His gift. . . and you will be learning to pray like the Lord!
