“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
Many religions have their own version of meditation. ‘Mindfulness,’which has become a trend right now, has buddhist origins. As christians, we have an obligation to ensure that our actions are pleasing to God, that what we think, do and say bring glory to Him. Therefore, we need to find out the origins of the things we do and not be led by what feels good and what is trendy. Christian meditation has been around for decades and the christian version was founded by a benedictine monk named John Main focussing on the values of Jesus and in the spirit of christian meditative prayer.
