meditation bcocScripture indicates that our thoughts should be directed toward God. For example, we are instructed to “set [our] minds[s] on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Colossians 3:2)  One way in which we train ourselves to to direct our thoughts toward God is through the practice of biblical meditation, that is, reflecting on the character, nature, and commands of God through His word. The expectation of meditating on God’s word is evident in Deuteronomy 11:18 when God instructed His people to “lay up these words of mine in your heart” as well as in Psalm 1:1-2 when the author of this psalm pronounced a blessing on the individual who “meditates" on God’s law "day and night.” With such an emphasis on meditation it seems only fitting that we consider how this practice can be employed today; therefore, this week’s spiritual exercise is designed to challenge us to engage in biblical meditation either by meditating on God’s word or God’s works.
