In my pastor's homily this morning, he brought up a great point about today's readings (1 Sm 9:1-4, 17-19; 10:1 and Mk 2:13-17). Both of these stories are about being called and the call is heard by people in the midst of doing ordinary things; Saul is trying to find a couple of stray donkeys that got away from the herd and Levi is doing his job at a customs post.

My takeaway from these readings is it's a great reminder that God is with us all the time -- not only in the exciting and fantastic or even grief-stricken moments of our lives. Even the ordinary of everyday life is extraordinary, because God is there with me always.
