Ss Simon and Jude.
Ephesians 2:19-22. Psalm 18(19):2-5. Luke 6:12-19.
Their message goes out through all the earth — Psalm 18(19):2-5.
‘Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and manure it.’
These words speak tellingly of Jesus’ hope, gentleness and patience. He nurtures, gives us time and space, invites us to change and grow, but leaves us free to respond. Only he can show us our true lifelessness and sinfulness. I suspect that my notion of my sinfulness and Jesus’ idea of it may be different. So often I do not show myself, or others, the hope and love he shows me. Lord, show me today where you call me to change, to growth, conversion and repentance
