St. Barnabas, Apostle

Some of us may have become so used to being in a particular way of life or in a particular place that we may have gradually become complacent. We may resist change or new ideas, since such things appears to be a threat to us. However, sometimes things happen for a reason and we may not be in control of the situation.

In today's reading, we are told that "the Holy Spirit said, 'I want Barnabas and Saul set apart for the work to which I have called them.'" This shows that our plans, our aspirations, our hopes and dreams; all these things can change according to God's plan. The question is: are we open, willing and humble enough to do what God has planned for us? Or are we stubborn and obstinate, refusing to budge or move on? Are we doing things God's way, or do we still insist in doing things our way?
