Book of Amos 7,12-15.

Amaziah, priest of Bethel, said to Amos: "Off with you, visionary, flee to the land of Judah! There earn your bread by prophesying,
but never again prophesy in Bethel; for it is the king's sanctuary and a royal temple."
Amos answered Amaziah, "I was no prophet, nor have I belonged to a company of prophets; I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores.
The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me, Go, prophesy to my people Israel."

Psalms 85(84),9ab-10.11-12.13-14.

I will hear what God proclaims;
the LORD –for he proclaims peace to his people.
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land.

Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.

The LORD himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before him,
and salvation, along the way of his steps.

Letter to the Ephesians 1,3-14.

Brothers and sisters: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens,
as he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him. In love
he destined us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ, in accord with the favor of his will,
for the praise of the glory of his grace that he granted us in the beloved.
In him we have redemption by his blood, the forgiveness of transgressions, in accord with the riches of his grace
that he lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight,
he has made known to us the mystery of his will in accord with his favor that he set forth in him
as a plan for the fullness of times, to sum up all things in Christ, in heaven and on earth.
In him we were also chosen, destined in accord with the purpose of the one who accomplishes all things according to the intention of his will,
so that we might exist for the praise of his glory, we who first hoped in Christ.
In him you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him, were sealed with the promised holy Spirit,
which is the first installment of our inheritance toward redemption as God's possession, to the praise of his glory.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 6,7-13.

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits.
He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick--no food, no sack, no money in their belts.
They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic.
He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave from there.
Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you, leave there and shake the dust off your feet in testimony against them."
So they went off and preached repentance.
They drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Walking with the Word: Daily Bible Readings for Inspired Living

In a fast-paced world filled with distractions and demands, it’s easy to lose sight of what truly matters. Amidst the chaos, finding moments of inspiration and inner peace becomes vital for our well-being.

One powerful way to achieve this is through daily Bible readings. Walking with the Word offers a transformative journey, guiding us towards a life of inspired living.

Let us explore how daily Bible readings can enrich our lives and provide the spiritual nourishment we need.

Finding Inspiration in Daily Bible Readings:

Engaging in daily Bible readings opens up a gateway to the wisdom and teachings of the Scriptures. The Bible is a profound source of inspiration, offering guidance, comfort, and encouragement.

Through its timeless words, we find narratives of triumph over adversity, stories of compassion and forgiveness, and profound insights into human nature and the divine.

The Power of Consistency:

Consistency is key when it comes to incorporating daily Bible readings into our lives. By setting aside dedicated time each day, we cultivate a habit that transforms our relationship with the Word.

This consistency helps to deepen our understanding, establish a strong spiritual foundation, and allow us to absorb the messages of the Bible more effectively.

Guidance for Daily Living:

The Bible provides a treasure trove of practical wisdom that can be applied to our everyday lives. Its teachings guide us in making ethical decisions, nurturing relationships, and finding purpose and meaning.

Whether we seek solace during times of difficulty, seek guidance for major life choices, or desire a moral compass to navigate through challenges, the Bible offers timeless principles that resonate with our human experience.

Building Faith and Trust:

Daily Bible readings foster a deeper connection with our faith. As we immerse ourselves in the Scriptures, we witness the unwavering faith of biblical figures and learn from their journeys.

The stories of Abraham’s trust in God, David’s courage, and Jesus’ teachings on faith become wellsprings of inspiration, nurturing our own belief and trust in a higher power.

Nurturing Inner Peace and Joy:

Walking with the Word brings us closer to God’s presence and fills our hearts with peace and joy. The Scriptures remind us of God’s love, mercy, and faithfulness, even in the midst of life’s trials.

Through daily readings, we discover passages that uplift our spirits, encourage us to persevere, and remind us that we are never alone.

The Word of God becomes a source of comfort, encouragement, and hope, instilling in us a deep sense of inner peace and joy.

Community and Reflection:

Engaging in daily Bible readings can be a solitary practice, but it also fosters a sense of belonging to a larger community.

By connecting with others who share a similar commitment to walking with the Word, we find support, accountability, and opportunities for meaningful discussions and reflections.

Joining Bible study groups or participating in online communities can enhance our understanding and provide fresh perspectives on the readings.


Walking with the Word through daily Bible readings is a transformative practice that leads to inspired living.

It is an invitation to embark on a journey of spiritual growth, nourishing our souls and aligning our lives with divine wisdom.

By engaging with the Scriptures consistently, we discover inspiration, guidance, and a deeper connection to God.

Let us embrace the transformative power of daily Bible readings and experience the abundant blessings they offer on our path of inspired living.
