Second Sunday of Lent: Listen to Jesus

Second Sunday of Lent
Feb. 28, 2021
Listen to Jesus

Did you hear it? No. Did you see it? No. “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” We are called to listen to Jesus every day. Each person hears differently.
God called to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am!” he replied.
Then God said: “Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There you shall offer him up as a holocaust on a height that I will point out to you.”
Both Abraham and Isaac walked up to the same destination of sacrifice. But each person carried a different message and understanding. Abraham goes up to sacrifice his own son. He was worried and stressed out. His son Issac was innocent and obedient to his father. He might feel religious and fun.
In order to listen to God’s voice, one needs to be attentive to it. Listen to hear. Listen to see. Listen to understand. And listen to live out God’s message in our lives. Abraham listened and brought Issac to sacrifice him. Then Abraham listened again in order to stop killing his own son.
Each day, each incident and each gathering/meeting, God shows us a different message with a different angle of truth. We need to be flexible and open to re-discern and re-decide again. Do not hold on to our fixed idea out of fear. One of the biggest obstacles of hearing and listening is our own mindless and fixed perception/philosophy about someone or something. We don’t want to change. Period.
Be calm. Be quiet. Be not afraid. Listen…without agenda.
Question: How can you listen with your beautiful eyes, positive imagination and generous heart?
