The old Boy Scout in me remembers the motto: “Be Prepared.”
There were never any limits for that motto we were trained to be prepared for anything and everything. We are to be physically prepared, mentally prepared and spiritually prepared for all of our life.
I was thinking about that for my worship and devoting experience and about how that motto would apply for me today. In my prayers I need to focus my thoughts and center my spirit and make it ready to accept God’s Holy Spirit.
As part of my preparations I open my heart to feel the love of God for me and all humankind. In my open heart I share that love and express my love for all of God’s children.
With my centered spirit and open heart I then can open my mind and clear it of all the noise of my life. Now I can be ready to listen to God.
Being prepared is something this old boy scout does every day in my walk of faith.
