If we keep going back to the fountain of faith and taking up the task of discipleship, then at the end of the day, we will be simply doing what we were obliged to do and find ourselves to be good and faithful servants. Whether we do more or less than our brother or sister in faith doesn’t matter. We are being faithful lovers of the Divine Source of love itself. Much of the dramatics of life are outside of our control. But our opinions, thoughts, proposed solutions, reactions, ideologies, philosophies, and long-range planning are not. We have control over these. We also have control over the day-to-day comings and goings of our lives. Maybe if people saw us living life a bit differently, it would trickle over and produce good fruit in other places. That’s what the whole business of sowing seeds is all about.
Adults: Are you producing the best fruit possible with the gifts and talents God has given you?
Children: We can forgive, love, and share with others. Which of these do you do most often?
