The Gospel this morning offers us God's view of things. God sees a teeny seed, watches it grow in secret and knows well its potential. God sees what we may miss or ignore. Jesus invites to life in God's kingdom where we are seen and incessantly, lovingly noticed by the God who has great faith in us and our potential.
As Father Aquinas reminded us this morning, the growth of a seed is certainly miraculous. And when seed and soil with water and warmth cooperate the potential within the seed may be realized. So all of us cooperating together in charity and understanding build up one another and bring forth life and make possible the realization and flourishing of the kingdom of God.
