The Word of God is sown everywhere. The question we must ask ourselves is where are we? Perhaps yesterday we were on a rocky path. Yet active within us is God’s fertile Word nourishing our strengths, strengthening our weaknesses and with patient endurance (Luke 8:1-15), today, we can be found flourishing in good soil and bearing good fruit.
As humans we do the best we can. Sometimes we don’t get it quite right. Other times we fall far from the mark. But God knows the heart that has eaten sour grapes yet longs toward perfection, in the redeeming acts of Love. Chosen to know God’s will, we trust that the fruit we bear will be wholly sweet again and become a witness to all the world (Acts 21:37-22:16).
