Luke 6, 12-19:
“Jesus went out into the hills to pray, and he spent the whole night in prayer to God. When the day cam he summoned his disciples and picked out twelve of them: he called them apostles”.
The Gospel of Luke presents Jesus praying whenever he has to make an important decision in his life.
One of these decisions is the moment when he has to choose twelve of his disciples as pillars of the new church that He is founding.
In these important decisions Jesus wants to be in a special way in contact with the Father to discover and accept his will.
His criterion of discernment will always be the will of his Father and the good of others.
What are your criteria for discernment in the decisions you are taking throughout your life?
What scales do you use in your important decisions?
• Do you turn to the Word of God in making your choices?
• Does your faith have something to say in the choices and decisions of your daily life?
