Listen. See. Share. Today’s readings provide a framework for Christian discipleship. Samuel hears the voice of God but does not know it is God. But once he does, wow. He becomes a great prophet. Saint John the Baptist points out the Lamb of God. And some of his disciples follow. Andrew is convinced Jesus is the Messiah and he shares this belief with his brother Simon. Listen. See. Share.
God has a plan for you. How often do we hear these words? God has a plan for us. We know it. But do we really let the power, length and breadth of God’s plan sink in? God’s plan for us is eternal, infinite and magnificent. God’s plan takes us beyond who we are today. But do we really reflect on our relationship with God, and are we willing to go wherever God leads us? Each year the Church gives us the season of Advent to listen. Will you?
