Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
January 31, 2020 – Friday
Gospel: Mark 4: 26-34
The Kingdom of God
Our gospel today highlights how Jesus wants to teach us the mystery of the Kingdom of God through parables. He likens the kingdom of God to a small mustard seed which grows and become the largest of all plants. For our faith to grow, we must shower it with efforts no matter how small or big it is. We must take advantage of the available means provided to us to grow in our faith through praying with the word of God or being present with God in Eucharist. If we encounter difficulties, be humble and ask the grace to God to help and guide us in the challenges we face in our prayer and faith life.
Mother Mary, accompany us to persevere in loving, allowing the Kingdom of God to grow in us, living and sharing the Kingdom of God especially to others who need it.
