In today's Gospel, Jesus makes a distinction that is fundamental for the spiritual life. Openness to God and his word must be our priority. Some people try to water down this Gospel and say that service is also essential. The Gospel is making a different point: the first and most important thing is to have a relationship with God. Once we begin to be filled with God, only then can we pour ourselves out for others.
Sometimes we think that God's will has to do with something that is alien to my life. Sunday's Gospel shows that the Lord wishes to do the extraordinary with the little that I can offer him. It is an incredible fact: God can do amazing things, but he asks for our little contribution so that he can multiply it beyond our expectations.
