Now then, my children, listen to me, blessed are those who keep my ways. (Prov 8:32)
The idea of listening involves how and and what we are listening to. How many times do we hear and tune in to something that is beneficial to us. Especially, when there is great expectation and reward ahead. In the same regard, Christ wants and desires us to completely listen to him. There is nothing more rewarding than a child listening to a parent that promises something of appreciation just for listening. Think of how many ways we can incorporate this when Christ only asks us to listen to his voice. Usually our conscience gets the best of us and we make rash decisions based on natural instinct. I challenge you today to be attentive to the voice of the spiritual Father versus the father our natural world. The outcome will be different.
