Proverbs 21:1-6,10-13, Luke 8:19-21
“Listen and do”
Today, Jesus calls us to be committed members of God’s family. We can truly say that we are God’s children only when we hear His Word and faithfully put it into practice. Every day, we need to set time and space for God where we listen attentively to His Word. God speaks to us through life’s events and circumstances. He speaks to us through people. He speaks to us best through Scripture. We must listen first before we do what He tells us.
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.” (James 1:22)
From listening, we must move to doing. We must translate our attentive listening to the voice of God into dynamic doing, active serving, unconditional loving.
Question for reflection:
What is Jesus’ invitation for me today?
