Hear the word of the Lord.

Today’s readings about listening are most appropriate for us as we move into Lent. ‘Listen to me and listen to my people’ is what I am hearing. If I learn to listen to God, I will find what the Lord is calling me to do. Isaiah was speaking to a world much like ours, where there is an increasing gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’. He is pleading for us to learn to do good, and learn to recognise justice.

Jesus knew how hard it can be to follow what is right. We don’t like to be different. But if we are following him that is our call. We display courage by showing our ‘colours’. As Christians, we need to be part of the solution, and not part of the problem.
