If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
I harden my heart to so much that I hear and see these days. Asylum seekers arriving by boat. Hungry children in refugee camps. Devastation brought by hurricanes and floods. God calls us to be in solidarity with those who suffer, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the world’s problems.
Do I give my full attention to the needs of others, both near and far away? Or do I follow my own stubborn inclinations? Do I listen to the prophetic voices in our community? Am I moving forwards in my faith?
Jesus warns against the dangers of a kingdom divided against itself and encourages us to work with others. How can I speak and act in a way that brings people together for the greater good?
