Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
Today’s Readings: Romans 8:26-28; 31-35; 37-39 & Matthew 13:31-33; 44-46; 51-52
“The kin-dom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in a field. It’s the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs… so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” Matthew 13:31
This week we’re not talking about anything big. We’re talking about the Kin-dom of Heaven. And that, Jesus tells us, is very small. No bigger than a mustard seed.
Everything starts somewhere. And everything starts small; small as a mustard seed. And, let’s face it, small is what we do these days. Of course even the small things seem to take a lot of thought, concentration and energy.
This Sunday, we’ll share communion, in some way, shape and form. The question I’m going to ask myself as I receive communion is, “What small thing am I going to do to be the Body of Christ?”-K
