Remember the Bible story of Samuel? He was the young boy who heard God speaking so clearly that he mistook it for the voice of Eli the priest calling him in the night. When Eli perceived that Samuel was in fact hearing God's voice, he told him to humbly acknowledge that calling. And as he grew, the Bible says, "The Lord was with Samuel, and did let none of his words fall to the ground" (I Sam. 3:19).
The book of First Samuel prefaces this account by explaining how precious God's Word was at that time. The Contemporary English Version says it this way: "In those days, the Lord hardly ever spoke directly to people ..." (I Sam. 3:1). And because it might sometimes seem that things aren't very different today—3,000 years later—we planned this week's Sentinel issue to help readers explore ways of cultivating a receptivity to God's guidance and direction. To be modern-day Samuels, if you will, expressing a child's trustful obedience to healing, life-giving thoughts of good.
