In the Sunday readings this week we hear a lot about God’s call. In the first reading we hear the story of Samuel and how he heard the Lord and thought it was Eli calling him and with Eli’s help he was able to fully tune in and respond “Speak Lord your servant is listening.” Then in the gospel we hear the story of Jesus calling the first disciples.
So the message is clear God is calling us, but are we tuned in? There are so many things that are trying to get our attention so it is important we do all we can to truly Tune In to what God is trying to tell us. We do this through prayer, Mass, reading scripture, participating in the Sacraments, and spending time with others who are trying to tune in.
It is not only important to tune in, but we also must respond like Samuel and say Speak Lord you servant is listening.
