O: here we are told that if we obey we will be secure with God, but those who disregard His word will be lost.
A: how often do I listen but not hear? I can listen to the message in the homily but am I really hearing what I need to? Just as it is easy to ignore what a person is saying, it is far too easy to ignore what God's word is saying. I know I don't want to be lost and want to feel secure with God. I need to do better about listening to what he is really saying.
K: Lord, I kneel before you praying to hear what you need me to hear.
