Our pastor's homily told us about the importance of Eli in today's first reading (Samuel 3:10, 19). When Samuel kept running to Eli, it was Eli that realized that it was the Lord who was calling Samuel. Our pastor asked us, "Who are the Eli's in your life?"
Interesting question isn't it? Who points you to the Lord when you look for direction? Who in your life lets God use their words to get you back on track?
I'll leave you with wise words from @FrCharles (on Twitter): " Homily tweet for today: Give thanks for those who pointed you to Jesus, encounter him, and receive from Him an invitation and a mission."
