The smallest – the biggest

January 31, 2014 9:41 am

“It is like a mustard seed which, at the time of its sowing, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth.Yet once it is sown it grows into the biggest shrub of them all and puts out big branches so that the birds of the air can shelter in its shade.” (Mk 4:31-32)

Beginning and end. Between them – God. His eye always sees the edges. He is the Alfa and the Omega. When He looks at us and our even smallest efforts, He can see the beautiful end. For us it was the smallest minute spend on prayer, for Him it is the eternity of us united with Him in Heaven.

Perspective. We are born to perform great actions, take up fantastic challenges, heroic deeds. But this is so often the end of a fulfilled life, the effect of my fidelity for many years. Begninning is small, ordinary, not attractive, needs time.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom” (Alleluia versus)
