Bible Term: Meditation

Meditation is simply the act of reflecting or contemplating something.

For followers of Jesus, meditation can refer to carefully considering a Bible verse or passage, the listening part of prayer, thankfully considering all God has done, or taking time to appreciate the creation he made.

In today’s fast-paced, activity-filled life, the practice of meditation is a lost art for many or an impossible task for others. Yet, God wants us to do just that. Psalms 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.”

Meditation is one of several spiritual disciplines.
