St. Lawrence of Brindisi
"Whoever has ears ought to hear."
Are you fertile? No, not like that! I mean, are you fertile ground for God's word? What does it take to prepare a place in your heart for God's word to grow?
One more thing: Jeremiah gave God excuses, but God took all of his shortcomings and blessed him and made him able to fulfill God's mission. All he had to do was say 'yes'. I think for us to be fertile ground for God's word, we too only have to say 'yes'. Even simply 'yes' to hearing God's word, as Jesus says. Open your heart during your reflection today and ask God to grow within you. The fruits of your willingness will be boundless!
Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to hear and truly listen to your word. Then let your word grow in me so that it becomes a part of my actions, showing your love to my family in all I do. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Lawrence, pray for me.
