Gospel - Mark 4:26-34
“The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed... “
When Christianity started, Jesus foresaw that its growth will be like the mustard seed; a tiny speck in the ground, but will grow eventually to a huge tree where birds can build their nests.
It is much like a missionary community that first stepped into a new and strange land. Or us starting off in an apostolate mission. Growth incurs difficulties, much like birthpains. But with God’s grace, we are confident that all these will pass and he’ll give us the knowledge, and tools to overcome it.
God uses what is weak to do His work. With His grace and Mama Mary’s help,may we be strengthened by our faith and trust we will led to do God’s will, despite hurdles and detours along the way. We will be led by the Holy Spirit and emboldened to do more.
