“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”

Deacon Mike Dalessandro

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”

Words from our Responsorial Psalm today, Psalm 95.

“If only God would just tell me, then I’d know what to do.”

We’ve heard this statement many times.
We’ve even said it ourselves.

God speaks to us in the sacred spaces and sacred times.
But God, being God, makes all things and times sacred.

And he speaks to us all day long:

In the silence of a ride to work.
In the beauty of nature.
In the children who play make-believe.
In the conversation over a meal.
In the song on the radio.
In the shut in.
In the homeless person.
In the socially awkward person.
In the physically impaired person.
In the mentally challenged person.
In the abused victim.
In the homosexual person.
In the crippled veteran.
In the addicted.
In the refugee.
In the death row murderer.
In the heartbeat within a mother’s womb.

Sometimes, we just don’t like where his voice is coming from.

How is God speaking to me today?

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”
