Growing Compassion


Each of us is called to take part in God’s love story.

Matthew 13:31

Jesus proposed another parable to them. “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field.”


The kingdom of heaven is evolving in the here and now.

Just like a tiny mustard seed under the dirt…it is growing.

But it is usually not seen because it is hidden from plain view.

But nonetheless, it’s sprouting.

And each of us is expected to be a sower of this seed.

Jesus clearly expected us to take action as God’s instruments in bringing about the kingdom of heaven in the here and now.

How are we being called to sow the seed of God’s kingdom so that it grows in this time and place? 

To know…we must be awake and alert to the Divine Presence…which means we must be focused on the present moment.

That is where our Loving Creator dwells…always loving us and wanting to commune with us. 

Now is the time and place where we can channel Love and Light as only each of us uniquely can…by planting seeds of God’s kingdom…or we could call it, God’s peaceable community.
