GOD’S KINGDOM WILL COME

In the gospel, Mark delivers a very significant message regarding faith and the kingdom of God. Jesus chose to speak to His audience in parables, leaving them to discern His message. The gospel consists of two parables about “seeds”. In the first, the seeds are scattered and over time grow and develop and when ripe the crop is harvested. Here the seed is like the Kingdom of God. While He was on earth, Jesus spent His whole life planting the “seeds “of the Kingdom which has yet to come to fruition and we, as followers of Jesus, are now called and challenged to play our part.

Then there is the parable of the mustard seed, which although it produces a tree relatively small in stature has a wide expanse thus providing a safe home for the birds of the air to flourish and grow. Similarly with the Kingdom of God, from insignificant beginnings, it has grown and will continue to give shade to all who come to shelter in its branches. The parables are an invitation to take time to consider how the plan of God unfolds around us in ways that are both surprising and sure. We are called to live by faith, act with love and walk with hope.

A PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN FATHERS

Heavenly Father, 

you entrusted your Son Jesus, 

the child of Mary, 

to the care of Joseph, an earthly father.

Bless all fathers

as they care for their families.

Give them strength and wisdom,

tenderness and patience;

support them in the work they have to do, protecting those who look to them,

as we look to you for love and salvation,

through Jesus Christ our rock and defender.

Amen.
