Reflection: 1st Corinthians: 1:26-31
Saturday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time – 1st Corinthians: 1:26-31
St. Paul’s first words in today’s first reading are “consider your calling.” These are three simple words and yet they are very powerful! Ask yourself: what do you consider your call to be? All of us have a “calling!” For most of us, it won’t be a grand calling, such as preaching or healing or doing miraculous deeds. Yet God has called each one of us! Our call may be to be a loving parent or grandparent, a teacher, to truly notice others and give them the gift of our time and attention. In today’s busy world, one of the greatest gifts we can give another is simply to be present to them. In our busy and active world, we can forget or neglect those people we care for most deeply! Or we may neglect to spend any time with the God who loves us so deeply! What will be my choices today? What will be your choices today?
