morning meditation


We reflect this week on our souls, that part of ourselves that pertains most directly to spirit and indeed to God’s Spirit. In the Bible, the concepts of soul (psyche) and spirit (pneuma) each carry a range of meanings, which at points do overlap, as do the concepts of heart and soul. The scriptures encourage us to “take care of” our souls, as that interior aspect within our human bodies where the Holy Spirit dwells and we experience intimacy with God and even mystical encounters with His presence. If we do not tend to our souls, how can we be fully prepared to love God.
