“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?”
Of course, everyone knows it’s a call to pay attention – Christmas is coming!
Or more important, St. Benedict, back in the 600s, wrote a guide for his monks. The very first word is “listen”.
Maybe with our busy lives, we don’t really listen – listen to the really important things, listen to the nudges of grace our heavenly Father sends us all day, every day. Try listening to those inspirations and then act upon them. Most of them will be minor, insignificant good efforts, but the outcomes are a genuine part of God’s abundant blessings. Try it, and thank God for his goodness to you!
