What are you looking for?

Amy Welborn takes us someplace else when we ask that question.

"When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, 'What are you looking for?'"
~John 1:38~

More times than I care to admit, I stride into a room or up the stairs with a great air of purpose and then come to a stop, bewildered. I haven't a clue as to why I'm there.

What is the world was I looking for?

If Jesus were to stop us in the middle of our confident daily journeys from room to room, meeting to meeting, and goal to goal and ask us the question he poses to the disciples here would we have an answer?

Lord, help me look at my life today and discern what it is I'm looking for.

I read this and then reflected on tie question EasterA posed on her blog yesterday and have the feeling I am called to act! And so now I call on the Holy Spirit to help me answer that question, "What am I looking for?" Discernment comes in many forms. This came in a simple question from a friend's blog.


Thanks be to God!

  1. We used to have the words "Quo Vadis" painted above our door for just that reason. When Our Lord asked it, it was with the same meaning you're contemplating, indeed. It's hard to stay recollected to it, though!

    Great post!

  2. A daunting task for sure, Lisa.

  3. What a fantastic post.. you sure have given me something to stop and think about:)

    Great journal question for my 8th graders.
    Hee hee.
