Our surroundings speak to us constantly. We just need to focus and listen.
I have driven/jogged by this colorful Palestinian themed stairway in Bethlehem, not too far from the Church of Nativity, dozens of times. I never noticed that it has 51 stairs, the same number as my age!
It inspired me to look up and meditate on John 1:51 – “Very truly I tell you,you will see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
Wow! It’s all about prayer, which I have not done much lately. It could be coincidence or a result of subconscious logic, but it really doesn’t matter. I listened and I shall pray with more intensity.
