In this video from Life Teen, Joel Stepanek helps us understand the readings for the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year A. This weeks readings are for everyone who thinks they are not good enough.
In Jesus’ time, rabbis would call people to follow him. But typically they would call people who were knowledgeable and “good enough”. But Jesus is calling fishermen and other people who in Jewish society of the day would not have been considered worthy.
God doesn’t require us to measure up. We do not have to be wise or learned or skillful. We just need to be willing. He can work with with whatever we have to offer.
