Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
January 25, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 132:1-5, 11-14
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
God uses just the right amount of persuasion to get our attention.
us are harder cases than others and that has been the truth throughout
history. Pharaoh of ancient Egypt needed many miracles and disasters to
convince him to set Godıs chosen people free. Jonah fled great
and nearly drowned until he heeded the Lordıs all. Samuel mistook the
Lordıs calling twice before some sensible council from Eli set him on
right path. Peter and Andrew answered the call easily and freely.
learn of Paulıs conversion. He was a particularly tough case and God
take his sight away to get him to listen!
For many of us, responding to the call does not require God to chase
inflict us or push us too hard. This may be good, or not so good,
on how you look at it. The fact is that conversion is a lifelong
happening a little at a time each day, week, month and year. We
learn from the scriptures, become more in tune with the Holy Spirit and
able to answer Godıs call and do His work. As love between a married
changes, grows and matures, so it is with our conversion and our love
and our response to His calling.
