Gospel: John 12:20-33
Grain of wheat
“Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.”
In life, there are things in us that needs to die for new things to grow. Think about what you are complaining mostly about that is missing in our life, or in your family relationships or at work. Instead of thinking the problem is them, try to look within you first. What is it in you that needs to die first so that you can contribute to providing what is missing.
Sometimes the memory we hold of a mistake of another is what really needs to die so that we can begin to trust the other again and believe that we all make mistakes but we all are never the same too, we are always new, so who are we not to give the other the benefit of the doubt?
