About Today Readings

St Andrew.

Romans 10:9-18. Psalm 18(19):2-5. Matthew 4:18-22.

Their message goes out through all the earth — Psalm 18(19):2-5.

‘Faith comes from what is preached, and what is preached comes from the word of Christ.’

There comes a time in an adult’s life when they hear the Word with the ear of the heart. Children do it well, listening with the ear of the heart. They know authenticity, they know truth. They have natural trust. They have imagination.

Things are rarely impossible to believe for children. Believe it or not, they listen well to adults they have faith in. Then they seem to lose it, for a variety of reasons—most of us would call it ‘growing up.’

Jesus frequently asked his disciples to be like little children. Listen with the ear of the heart.

Love easily. Have imagination. Trust in the Word. Have faith. Have faith in God. Have faith in God’s love, manifested in Christ Jesus, the gift of love.
