Today, another lectio divino.
Let your imagination fill in the blanks as you would experience if you were physically there: imagine what the weather was like? Imagine the smells – food, wine. Listen with your ears – was there a chatter of people talking around the table? See with your eyes, was it dimly lit inside, growing dark outside with a fire burning in a hearth?
Keeping these things in mind, turn to Matthew 26:6-13 – read it, or even listen to it on a Bible app.
What did God impress upon you?
Look again at verse 10 – “Why are you bothering this woman?” Jesus asks in response to the disciples indignation. “She has done a beautiful thing to me.” “Beautiful” is what my version says. But, according to Strong’s Concordance, that word is “agathos” or “good.” Beauty = good.
What beauty have you experienced recently?
