Commentary on the Gospel of
TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS
In the Scriptures, we read of incidents of God calling specific persons. Today, God speaks more to our hearts. But the call is no less real. Many religious men and women have heard this call in their hearts and have responded. There might be other calls apart from a call to a way of life. It might be an inspiration to leave an addiction, to repulse a temptation, to come back to righteousness, to help someone in need, to forgive someone, to ask forgiveness from someone, etc. The call is often so quiet that one can actually not hear it because of the noisy distractions one surrounds oneself with. It is a moment of grace and that is why we are exhorted “not to harden our hearts”. Instead we keep the ear of our hearts always open to such unexpected invitations. This requires a continuous state of MINDFULNESS, living each moment in watchful awareness. SPEAK LORD, YOUR SERVANT IS LISTENING!
