My reflection today comes from Fresh Bread by Joyce Rupp:

“A man throw seed on the land. Night and day, while he sleeps, when he is awake, the seed is sprouting and growing; how, he does not know. Mark 4:26–2

I believe that this is one of the earth’s finest moments, that the sun lifting yellows and greens into life of tiny poplar leaves is much like God’s own Spirit of love lifting life into me.

I believe that the Word of God has many times been planted in my life, often because of another who received the seed in ready soil, brought forth a harvest, and shared that goodness with me.”

Today let us stop and thank God for the people who have nurtured us during our lives.
