Friday Focus: The Mustard Seed
In Christ every one of us has that mustard seed within us. We are called to greatness. But God does not measure greatness by how many points we put on some celestial score board. God’s measure of greatness is love. Are we totally committed to loving God and neighbor? Are we guided by his word? Do we live in an ongoing dialog of prayer… speaking and listening to the palpable divine presence in our lives? If we live to return God’s love, he will surely bring the greatness. And our humble mustard seed will thrive, til God harvests us home.
to you belong the mysteries of the universe.
You transform shepherds into kings,
the smallest seeds into magnificent trees,
and hardened hearts into loving ones.
Bless us with your life-giving Spirit,
re-create us in your image,
and shape us to your purposes,
through Jesus Christ. Amen
