“He said, ‘To what shall we compare the kingdom of God,
or what parable can we use for it?
It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
What strikes you most in this image Jesus uses?
What comparison can you make in your own life?
Make the application and move into your day.
Heritage word—“Jesus, the Eternal WORD of the Father, challenges us in His incarnation,
making a decision to come DOWN to us as a poor, ordinary human person,
vulnerable and sensitive.”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
