Our Father Benedict begins this passage by connecting the actions of the wise builder on the rock of Jesus' instructions to those who attribute all good in themselves to God (from yesterday's reading). It is to the rock, not to our actions, that St. Benedict desires to fix our attention. And it is our clear perception of God as the wise, patient source of all goodness that frees us to become who we are called to be: channels of Divine power and love in the world.
God's part each day is to show the way and to provide ongoing grace for our journey. Our part each day is to listen, change our inner orientation (metanoia-repent, convert), and obey.
