In this video from Life Teen, Joel Stepanek helps us understand the readings for the Fourth Sunday of Advent for Year B. How good of a listener are you?
What we have in mind is not always the same as God’s plan. Sometimes what we hear is impacted by what we want to hear or what we expect to hear. David is expecting a worldly kingdom, but God’s mind is about building His Kingdom. Nathan listens to God.
Mary listens to God’s voice in the message of the angel. She could have found ways to dismiss it, but she did not.
Advent is a time to listen to God’s voice in our everyday lives. Are we listening to God?
