Meditation (Gen 35;2-3) Jacob said to his family and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods that you have; purify yourselves and put on clean clothes. We are going to leave here and go to Bethel, where I will build an altar to the God who helped me in my times of trouble and who has been with me everywhere I have gone.”

Personal Reflection and Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, May You help us ‘get rid of our foreign gods’ and purify us. We too need to build You and altar for You are constantly helping us and You are with us wherever we go. Show us Your way, dear Lord, strengthen our hearts and our minds so we may worship only You! Guide and direct our lives towards You always. Amen.
