COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST:
“This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” Often in the spiritual life, we can struggle with the temptation to say too much. God is calling us to listen attentively to his words and not to feel compelled to have to say something. He is looking for a response in love.
Have you ever noticed how blessed you feel when someone takes the time to really listen to you? Our lives are hectic, and often we don’t afford this simple act of love to one another. Challenge yourself to be present to those who approach you, and affirm them that they are seen, heard and loved by you in what they desire to communicate. Listen to my beloved!
