Our first reading talks about obedience. It also has a great moment when Samuel tells Saul has a word from the Lord for him. Saul listens. Obedience is knowing God always has something more to say to us. Cardinal Tobin said something like that. Obedience comes from the Latin word that means “to listen.” Obedience is listening for God and acting accordingly. Wanting to hear more of what he has to say, wanting to shape our lives after it.
