Gospel: Matthew 13:10-17
How is your heart today?
In our Gospel today, the disciples asked Jesus why He speaks to people in parables. With this, He responded to them that the reason He speak to the people in parables is “because they look and they do not see; they hear but they do not listen or understand.” Is (cf. Mt 13:13)
Words are meaningless not to impaired ears, but to closed hearts as signs are inauthentic not to blinded eyes, but to hardened hearts.
The Word of God is not only meant to be heard by ears, but to be understood by hearts. Same as well as the miracles of Jesus not only meant to be seen by eyes, but to be witnessed by hearts.
Today, Jesus reminds us to take a look at our hearts and be conscious with its current condition inviting us to open our hearts to His words and miracles.
