October 30 – Tuesday

Tuesday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time

 

Gospel: LK 13:18-21

Reflection:

What can mustard seeds teach us about the kingdom of God? The tiny mustard seed literally grew to be a tree which attracted numerous birds because they loved the little black mustard seed it produced. God's kingdom works in a similar fashion. It starts from the smallest beginnings in the hearts of men and women who are receptive to God's word. And it works unseen and causes a transformation from within.

The kingdom of God produces a transformation in those who receive the new life which Jesus Christ offers. When we yield to Jesus Christ, our lives are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

 

Prayer: (all together)

Transform us Lord into a Christ-like holiness that we desire in our lives. Amen
