How many times I’ve read this passage, focusing on what that Voice from heaven would say. The content drew me, not the fact that it was a Voice from heaven. That also tends to be how I go through the day… focusing on the content of the moment rather than first on the fact that every moment is an utterance of that Voice. This includes all the moments that are ordinary, routine, sometimes even not particularly desirable. And then I understand why St Benedict, under whose monastic Rule I live, tells his monastics to begin every day with the verse from Psalm 95:. “If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” That Voice will speak all day long in everything.
