8/10/2022 Today’s Gospel Reading: John 12:24-26

Jesus said to his disciples:
24 “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
25 Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.
26 Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.”

8/10/2022 Today’s Gospel Reflection: The Seed

The seed is a very small item. It is actually very insignificant. Once it is planted to the ground however, it germinates and grow to bear much fruit. At the right time, people harvest them joyfully for their own consumption.

Yet the seed remains insignificant if it stays where it is. Just like people. When they remain in their comfort zones, afraid to venture into the stormy sea of serving others, they remain insignificant.

We were born to be of value to God and to others, not just to be selfishly comfortable in our own selves. As the song goes, “we are made for service to care for all men“.

Go here to see further reflection.
