Let’s read over the passage again today and look for the contrasts you see in the passage.

For instance, “reverent fear.” Does “reverence” and “fear” create contrasting images of ideas for you? Or do they somehow “fit” together?

What else in the passage offers “commentary” on that image?

Maybe, “perishable” and “imperishable.”

What do you see named in the passage as “perishable” or “imperishable”?

You could go another step. What does this suggest to you that you might encounter today as “perishable” or “imperishable”?

We read of “discipline” and “obedience.” I am not suggesting these two are in contrast but more likely different facets of the same mindset and behaviors.

What do think contrasts with “discipline” and “obedience” that might be named or just implied in the passage?

As you read the passage, open yourself to some of these thoughts and see where you are lead.

We’ll talk later,

{ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est}
