EAT YOUR WHEATIES

Fr. Rich

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

I was never a very good gardener.  Never much liked weeding; was usually in too great a rush.  Inevitably I would pull up flowers that I assumed were weeds.  “If it looks like a weed, it is a weed,” was my rationalization.  Evidently that’s not always true.

We can do the same in life, too.  In our impatience we can judge others too quickly.  “He’s a weed.”  “She’s a weed.”  We don’t take the time to look for the good, the wheat, or even for the possibility of it.

Maybe you’ve done that to yourself once or twice as well — spend more time judging yourself, condemning yourself, paying too much attention to what you think are weeds, flaws, in your personality, in your decisions, in your thinking and feeling.  We can do that.  Ignore the wheat, focus on the weeds.

According to Jesus, God is a far more patient farmer than us ... Thankfully.  Let’s spend the week focusing on the wheat, not the weeds.

Peace!
Fr. Rich
