S02 E03 Do unto others... (Tobit Ch.2)


In this episode, I reflect on 3 key themes from Tobit chapter 2 : 1) Obedience to the father, 2) Why we are called to be charitable? 3) Tobit's Spiritual Blindness; and how we can relate to each one of them in our present day. My reflection is based on the prayer of Lectio Divina.

The Bible I am reading from is the New American Bible online version taken from the USCCB website: https://bible.usccb.org/bible/tobit/2. I use the prayer of Lectio Divine for my reflections.
