The Differences Between Christian and Secular Meditation

“As you read them, note a couple of important differences between Christian meditation and most other forms of meditation. Whereas secular approaches to meditation involve emptying the mind or focusing on self, Christian meditation involves filling the mind with biblical truth and focusing on God. Also, secular meditation usually insists on thinking only about the present moment, forbidding any remembering of the past or looking to the future. Christian meditation, on the other hand, delights in remembering God’s great redemptive acts in the past and joyfully anticipates the heavenly future of believers in paradise.” -David Murray, The Happy Christian
