Reflections of the Day
20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B - 19 August 2018
Be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18)

Today is exam day. And to make it a little easier, we have reprinted todayís second reading:

15Watch carefully how you live, not as foolish persons but as wise, 16making the most of the opportunity, because the days are evil. 17Therefore, do not continue in ignorance, but try to understand what is the will of the Lord. 18And do not get drunk on wine, in which lies debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and playing to the Lord in your hearts, 20giving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Chirst to God the Father.

Fill in the blank - identify five important transitions in this passage:

1. From foolish to w_ _ _ (verse 15)
2. From ignorant to understanding the w_ _ _ of the Lord (verse 17)
3. From drunk on wine to being f _ _ _ _ _ with the Spirit (verse 18)
4. Addressing one another in P_ _ _ _ _, h_ _ _ _ _, and spiritual s _ _ _ _ (verse 19)
5. Giving t_ _ _ _ _ always for everything (verse 20)

Paul said, "Be filled with the Spirit," and he told us how. So in your prayer today, do three things:

1. Read one psalm and ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with Godís grace and wisdom. Try to sense what he is saying to you: perhaps a new insight, perhaps a sense of encouragement, perhaps guidance on how to act at work today.
2. Thank Jesus for all of your blessings.
3. Address every person you meet today with kindness and love, generosity and patience. Make this your spiritual song to them.
