"Think!" —Deuteronomy 10:14

One of the shortest sentences in the Bible is: "Think!" We are to think about how the Lord has constantly shown His love for us. "Think back on the days of old, reflect on the years of age upon age" (Dt 32:7). Come to think of it, the Lord had been awe-fully good to us. He created us. We can walk, talk, think, pray, see, hear, and love. God became man and died on the cross to give us a new nature, free us from sin, and make us His children. God Himself has risen from the dead and He promises that those who believe in Jesus will also rise. The Father and Son have poured out the Holy Spirit on us, and the Trinity lives within us.

Thinking of what God has done for us is overwhelming. "How deep are the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How inscrutable His judgments, how unsearchable His ways!" (Rm 11:33) "Let us praise Him the more, since we cannot fathom Him, for greater is He than all His works" (Sir 43:29). "Extol Him with renewed strength, and weary not, though you cannot reach the end. For who can see Him and describe Him? or who can praise Him as He is? Beyond these, many things lie hid; only a few of His works have we seen" (Sir 43:32-34). Therefore, think and thank forever.

Prayer: Father, send the Holy Spirit to "jog my memory" about Your infinite expressions of love for me.
Promise: "With the best of wheat He fills you. He sends forth His command to the earth; swiftly runs His word!" —Ps 147:14-15
Praise: St. Dominic thought deeply about God through his practice of contemplative prayer. He thought and contemplated so deeply that he became the first Master of the Sacred Palace, theologian to the pope.
