day no. 12,931: don't not marvel, but don't JUST marvel‏

Matthew 17:5

While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said:
This is My beloved Son.
I take delight in Him.
Listen to Him!
Peter didn’t know what to say after seeing Jesus transfigured before him. So, Peter broke the uncomfortable silence by talking. He didn’t know what he was saying or where exactly he was going with it, but nevertheless, he kept on talking. And then he was interrupted by God who essentially told Peter to shut up and listen. To strengthen His command, the Father confirms that Jesus is His Son and that Jesus is doing exactly what He wills.
Have you ever seen someone meet a celebrity that they love? Often times they will blubber on and on because they don’t know what to say. Why do they spend so much time talking at the celebrity and so little time listening to them?
Don’t just marvel at what Jesus has done. Don’t not marvel, but don’t JUST marvel.
Listen to Him!
May your inspiration prepare you for attentive and active listening rather than aimless and wandering talking.
