In worship today we heard stories of listening as it impacts our faith. Samuel (meaning God has heard) listens to Eli’s counsel to invite God to speak to him (Samuel). We realized that Eli was effective in leading Samuel, almost in spite of his waning faith and awareness of God. Jesus also listened to Nathanael to truly hear what was at his heart as opposed to only hearing. We are invited to listen for God and reflect on how God is inviting us to respond to the world around us. How is God inviting you to listen?
I invite your comments,
