About Today Readings

St John the Almsgiver.

Samuel 6:12-15, 17-19. Psalm 23(24):7-10. Mark 3:31-35.

Who is this king of glory? It is the Lord—Psalm 23(24):7-10.

‘Anyone who does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.’

Dear Lord, it can be breath-taking to think that by doing God’s will we can be as close to you as brother, sister or even mother. It is not easy to discern what is God’s will since we are inclined sometimes to think that God’s will and our own will are one and the same.

Our common sense tells us that we can only know the will of God by getting close to God in prayer and by paying attention to your words. God created us to grow into what he meant us to become. You, Lord, are our way towards doing this. Your way is God’s way, so we turn to you in love and trust. We pray that we dwell in God’s sight and become close to you.
