Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds.
What I love most about this Gospel is its ease to allow one to transition into some deep reflection. Let's spend a few moments in reflection.
I ask that you abide with me, wherever and however I am at this moment: at home, getting ready for work, enjoying the morning, at work, relaxing after a long day, happy, sad, excited, apprehensive, stressed, content, at peace.
Lord, you created me as the wheat; you made me good. What talents, strengths, abilities have you blessed me with?
Have I shared those gifts with others?
What weeds are present in my life? What keeps me from loving you, Lord, others, and myself?
How can I live a faithful life in the constant presence and pressures from such ‘weeds’? How can I remain rooted in your love?
How can I separate myself from the weeds? Ask for a prayer of forgiveness and resolve.
Lord, I ask that you be in me, and I in you. Allow me to live my life glorifying Your name and Your Kingdom here on earth in my thoughts, words, and actions. Amen.
