Tune your ears to listen to God
  • Jeremiah 7:23-28
  • Psalm 95:1-2,6-9
  • Luke 11:14-23

Sometimes in our human weakness good can be judged as bad and bad can be judged as good. Jesus has power and authority over the work of evil. He uses this power to perform good deeds for the benefit of humankind. However, the people around him fail to recognise the work of God being performed in their midst. This human behaviour is not something specific to this incident alone. This is a behaviour consistent from the Old to the New Testament. Possibly including our behaviour too. Rejection than acceptance of the work of God is evident throughout: to the extent of rejecting and sentencing the Son of God to be crucified. The Word of God reveals the intervention and unfailing desire of God to give humankind a better life: freedom from evil, a path to happiness and the ability to reach eternity. In today’s first reading the prophet Jeremiah affirms that the only way to prosper is to tune our ears and hearts to listen to God’s command.

PRAYER: Abba Father, may our hearts be softened to recognise your work in our midst. Amen.
