Lord your servant is listening

The kingdom of God is the plan of God unfolding according to God’s wish for us and indeed all of creation.

 

It takes time to unfold and we cannot always see the outcome of our work straight away when we act in the service of God.

 

It is enough for us to stay faithful to our commitments trusting that it is God’s work and will unfold in God’s ‘time’.

 

Just as gardeners wait for a seed to grow, mature and bear a harvest so must we when we commit ourselves to the service of God.

 

We need to be patient with ourselves as well as each other and not expect instant results.

 

Jesus spoke in parables giving others an opportunity to see things with fresh eyes.
