1 Cor 1: 26-31

Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God.

He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, in order that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Boast in the Lord

‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’ The last line of this Scripture reading echoes St. Ignatius’ words in a letter he wrote to Sr. Teresa Rejadell in June 1536.  Ignatius tell her that if she speaks of how God works in her life “you would be giving praise to the same Lord because you are making known His gift, and you glory in Him, not in yourself.”

It’s not often part of our culture to talk about how God’s goodness has shown up in our daily life.  I thank God in prayer, but rarely share that experience with other people. I am challenged by today’s reading to share with others my experiences of God.  Can you take a few minutes to reach out to someone you trust and tell them about one way you feel God’s presence in your life?

Prayer

God,
Help me to find time in my day to speak about you.
Help me to use opportunities to share with others how you are present in my life.
Let this be my mantra for today:
“When I boast, let me boast in the Lord.”

Amen.

PRAYER REQUESTS

DAILY EXAMEN

The Daily Examen is a prayer technique developed by St. Ignatius to help us reflect on the events of the day to discern God’s presence and direction. When Ignatius founded the Society of Jesus, he required the Jesuits to practice the Examen twice daily—at noon and at the end of the day. It’s a habit that Jesuits, and many other Christians, practice to this day.

The Examen structure presented below is adapted from a technique described by Ignatius Loyola in his Spiritual Exercises. Click here for more information from our partners in ministry at Loyola Press.

Daily Examen

1. Become aware of God’s presence

God, I believe that at this moment I am in your presence and you are loving me.

2. Review the day with gratitude

God, you know my needs better than I know them. Give me your light and your help to see how you have been with me, both yesterday and today.

3. Pay attention to your emotions

God, help me to be grateful for the moments when people have affirmed me and challenged me. Help me to see how I have responded, and whether I have been kind to others and open to growth.

4. Choose one feature of the day and pray from it

God, forgive me for when I have not done my best or have failed to treat others well. Encourage me, guide me, and continue to bless me.

5. Look toward tomorrow

As I look to the remainder of this day, make me aware that you are with me. Show me how to be the person you want me to be.
