Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art. Thou my best Thought, by day or by night, Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
The reading today in my community was from the Gospel of Matthew - the call of Matthew. Each time I hear this, I am struck by Matthew's immediate and complete response to Christ's call. My responsible self momentarily quivers, he left his post at customs?
As Jesus passed on from there,
he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.
He said to him, “Follow me.”
And he got up and followed him.
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art. Matthew is not moved by Christ's preaching, the mere sight of Christ so persuades him that he walks away from all the things of this world.
I listen to this song and wonder if my vision is sufficiently on Christ that I would follow him on sight?
What called you forth today? in song or in word....
