Thorns

Today’s meditation brings to mind the parable of the thorns and seeds that Jesus preached. As individuals and as members of the human community, we must be aware that the seeds we spread land on fertile soil. Too many of our thoughts and actions fall among the thorns and are smothered by evil and hate.

I am sure that if we take the time to properly plant our seeds of love, giving by a most grateful God, will lift humanity to work in the light of God’s light and bring all living creation to its fullest state.

Our fears are humanized by greed, by the feeling that there is not enough of God’s love for all. If we accept God’s love for ourselves and our neighbors, all of the seeds we plant will grow to be trees and plants of the grandest images of a perfect society.

God is love; let us be also.
