The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Use of Parables by Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Friday Of The Third Week In Ordinary Time

Mark 4:26-34

A story draws our attention and we are instantly able to apply the teaching from the story. Jesus used parables to explain the scriptures to the people, to make them realize that God was an essential part of their lives, to understand the truths of the faith and apply it to their daily lives. 

The introduction of the farmer, is a story of total surrender, and patience, resulting in glory. The farmer sows the seed, and patiently waters it and then leaves it to grow. The crop grows well and then is ready to harvest, the fruit of his labour.. he does not know how the grain grows, but he does his part of planting and nurturing it. 

We too, like the mustard seed are sown, from infancy to adulthood, the growth process is natural and marvellous, but with very essential and selfless contributions from our parents, teachers, and others along the way. Our contribution in turn is our response of obedience, love and surrender to them. We then see the result of a matured person, fruitful family/ community. The Kingdom of God is here and now, we choose how to let the Love of God reign in our hearts, minds and lives and let his spirit rule.
