The parable of the rich young man who hears the Good News and does not immediately respond reminds us that we each have a part in Salvation history. God calls, but we must respond.

Saying “yes” to Jesus is something that we need to do every day. We each can recall our first “yes” to God. We must renew this pledge every day.

Dear Jesus, may I renew my “yes” to You today and every day. It matters most to me, O God, when I am receptive to Your Spirit.
