The readings are Psalm 90, Numbers 17:1-11 & 2 Peter 3. There was one theme in particular that stood out in all texts, and it was ‘growth’.
“You carry them away like a flood;
They are like a sleep.
In the morning they are like grass which grows up:
In the morning it flourishes and grows up;
In the evening it is cut down and withers.” (Psalm 90:5-6)
“Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds. Then Moses brought out all the rods from before the Lord to all the children of Israel; and they looked, and each man took his rod.” (Numbers 17:8-9)
“You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:17-18)
I researched some symbols that represented growth and the labyrinth is what caught my eye.
It not only represents spiritual growth but wholeness, connection to the source, eternal freedom and is also a metaphor for one’s journey bringing forth the “hidden truths in the process”. This last meaning in particular I liked because it also relates back to v8 of Psalm 90: “You have set our iniquities before You, Our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.”
I chose the cross because the Christian takes their journey through Christ Jesus.
