As I read over today’s readings it gave me great hope with an awareness once again of the blessings, wonders and possibilities I encounter every day in my relationship with God. At the same time it gives me pause to take another look at what I am doing each day.
Today’s readings are rich in possibility as I pray about protecting and preserving our land, waters and living creatures. What am I doing? Are my efforts falling on good soil? Am I a good steward? Am I part of larger group efforts to lessen global warming? Do I recycle, conserve energy?
I continue to pray that with God’s love and compassion for all my weaknesses I may continue to believe that the seeds of my actions will fall on “good soil” so that seeds may continue to fall on good ground for generations to come.
Where do the “seeds” of my thoughts, behavior, prayer fall each day? It is another way, a metaphor, for me to look at my choices and how I spend time and effort.
