Live the Liturgy

We are reminded today that the seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest. What kind of soil do we have? God’s word needs to take root in our lives so that we can remain faithful not only when life is easy but when it gets challenging and difficult. Anxiety, worldly cares and concerns, personal challenges, experiences of loss and death, and even fear and disappointment can prevent us from trusting God’s promise. We can even find ourselves doubting God’s fidelity and lose touch with his presence. Our soil can easily become rocky, hard, and unyielding. Open your eyes and ears today and let all that is around you lead you to God’s presence. Then, do all in your power to cultivate and nurture a life that is eager to receive him and fertile for growing the seeds of God’s kingdom.
