A nurse in the pediatrics unit, before listening to the little ones’ chest, would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to their own hearts. Their eyes would always light up with awe. But she never got a response to equal four year-old David’s.
Gently he tucked the stethoscope in his ears and placed the disk over his heart. “Listen,” the nurse said, “what do you suppose that is?” David drew his eyebrows together in a puzzled line and looked up as if lost in the mystery of the strange tap-tap-tapping deep in his chest. Then his face broke out in a wondrous grin. “Is that Jesus knocking?”
As we continue our Lenten journey, let us listen to our own heartbeat. Listen closely for the knock of Jesus upon the door of your heart.
