Scripture: Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival. Luke 12:37
Prayer: Help me to be vigilant.
Response: Think for a moment about being vigilant. When have you been most vigilant? Yes, you can mention instances when vigilance seemed to come easy to meet professional challenges of the past. But how do you translate that vigilance into the vigilance about which Luke writes?
Vigilance is first and foremost being alert, awake, and conscious. It is being able to take a whole panorama in with hardly a nod of your head, and the same is true of your heart. It is being able to reflect upon your life in an instant – to the very core, not allowing routine or the multiplicity of activity to cloud who you are, or better who you intend to be.
Soul vigilance is beginning to learn how to operate with the control capsule located in your heart – or if that expression doesn’t resonate with you – from the depth of your being, a region where your voice is deeper as is the wisdom. At that level you will discover richness in perception, in allegiance, in patience, and of course in consciousness.
