Parable of the Mustard Seed

Yellow mustard seeds

Mass for today, the feast of St Joachim & St Anne is here.

Gospel is the Parable of the Mustard Seed

Jesus calls all of us to a life of love, forgiveness and reconciliation, but we are lazy and in an attempt to rationalize our inaction, we ask for ‘more faith’. 

Jesus sees through our attempt at stalling and challenges us to start with what we have.

A prayer, a smile, an act of  forgiveness, an act of kindness, a generous heart, a sharing of resources, an email of encouragement,  sharing a meal – these are all tiny mustard seeds but can grow into something much bigger.

Yes, Phil--small beginnings. I love this proverb: "Little becomes much when we place it in God's hands."

Thanks for the reminder.
