Psalm 106:19-23
Matthew 13:31-35

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

The Kingdom of Heaven is Like a Mustard Seed.

You didn't hear it from me; in fact, you heard it straight from Jesus. But the Kingdom of Heaven is insidious. Yes! You put a little bit of it in your life, and soon you find it has taken over.

That's what Jesus has to tell us today -- a little bit of attention to the Kingdom and you'll find that the smallest seed has grown into the largest tree. You'll find a bit of yeast will leaven a mound of flour. It doesn't take much -- a daily Mass, a morning prayer, an afternoon devotion, a few words before a meal.

Any time we direct our attention to "the one thing needful" we plant that mustard seed. We need only nurture it with a bit of loving care and we'll find that it is far larger than we ever thought.

The kingdom of Heaven is powerful -- a little bit will fill your whole life and carry you away to the place of God's presence.
