When Jesus calls the twelve to follow him, He sets the paradigm for every Christian vocation. God always takes the initiative. Each of us is given the freedom to respond or not. 

Am I attuned to the voice of the Lord? Is discernment part of how I make decisions? Am I ready to say “yes” to God today? 

O Holy Spirit, grant me a keen ear. May I listen for the voice of Jesus as I discern how best to love and serve.
