Just a Thought March 15th – 16th
“If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.”
I don’t think there is anyone among us who would ‘harden their heart’ to the voice of God! But what happens when we get a call from someone in need, could be family, a friend, neighbor, possibly even someone we are not that friendly with, asking help, needing some of our time, perhaps, run an errand.
Maybe the need is simply to have someone care for or about them.
Jesus calls us to ‘love our neighbor’, to heed the voice of those who are hurting, to reach out, to harden not our hearts.
“For He is our God, and we are the people He shepherds, the flock He guides.”
God Himself gave us Jesus, His Son, who showed us by the way. He lived His life with Mary and Joseph, He followed His Father’s call, and so one day we could all be together in His Kingdom.
Jesus still thirsts for souls, He invites all of us to join Him and receive like the Samaritan woman, “living water”. Then He asks us to be his instrument and help all to know His love, simply by caring for and about each other.
I close with the words from our Communion Antiphon:,
“For anyone who drinks it, say the Lord, the water
I shall give will become in him, a spring welling up to eternal life.”
Let’s strive this week to be that spring welling up to eternal life for one another.
God bless you and yours.
