Bible Readings and Meditation
Isaiah 6:1-8, (9-13); Psalm 138;
1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11
Just as Jesus involved himself in Peter's everyday concerns about fishing, God calls to each of us in our ordinary everyday lives and asks that we follow Him. Sometimes that call is to radical vocation and sometimes it is a call to feed God's sheep right where we are, in our families, at our work, in our church and in our communities.
Jesus' behaviour and actions provide the perfect model for us. He went out among the people, into the street, where they lived, worked, experienced joy and sorrow --- all of the messiness of their lives.
