The calling of Mathew is an icon to the Truth that God call whomever He pleases. Everyone whom Jesus called to follow Him was a sinner. Accepting this is part of saying yes to god.

Am I willing to listen for God’s call in my life? What makes me unwilling to say yes? Where is the resistance in my life? Do I see myself as having a necessary part in God’s plan?

Dear God, when You call my name, help me to be courageous in saying yes. May I not give in to my sense of unworthiness. I am a sinner and God has called me to be holy.
