When Jesus heals the paralyzed man, He uses the passive voice to describe the healing: your sins are forgiven. In truth, God has forgiven them.

God is always active in the world. Sometimes what God accomplishes is done in quiet and subtle ways. How attuned am I to the actions of God in my life and in the lives of others?

O Jesus, attune me to the presence of God today. May I be open to the subtle yet powerful presence of God in today’s world.
