Meditation and Contemplation Joyful Journey

    • Christianity

Meditation is frequently recommended in popular culture as a way to alleviate stress and anxiety while fostering a sense of calm. The Bible, however, provides specific guidance on what authentic, biblical meditation and contemplation should entail.

This week, Janet and Jocelyn explore the tenets of biblical meditation and contemplation, highlighting how they differ from worldly perspectives. They delve into the key aspects we should focus on when meditating on scripture and discuss how contemplation of God should inspire us to love and honor Him more deeply
