A REFLECTION ON THIS WEEKEND’S GOSPEL:  In the second parable, the quiet status of a seed is apparent. Jesus says that the mustard seed is the smallest and humblest of all the seeds on earth.  The tiny mustard seed (the size of a pinhead) unassumingly grows to be a great shrub or even a tree that is taller than a man’s head.  So are we to be humble also, because the Spirit’s plantings in our souls will seem exceedingly tiny, even unnoticeable. Our humility—like the farmers’ and the seeds’) means waiting, or in other words, being patience. As fallow lands, we must be ready but awaiting something greater than ourselves, something the Spirit bestows.  This means that the “largest of plants” will not be you or me, but God, present in our lives and communities. If God is great enough to be loved above all things and within all things, taller than a man or woman’s head, so to speak, then he is large enough to found our greatest plans or hopes. Let us be fallow.

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received,

and pass on the love that has been given to you. 

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones,

and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.

It is there for each and every one of us. Amen.
