Friday of the 3 week in ordinary time ‘b’
It is very important to cooperate with God when we want to make progress in our spiritual life. If there is no cooperation and we rather expect everything to be done by God or if we expect to do everything on our own, then we will end up disappointed because we won’t be making any progress in life. If we want to grow, we need to allow God into our lives. But at the same time, we need at least to plant a little seed and help it grow. Sometimes I think that God will do everything for me, without my contributing any input. But sometimes I want to do everything without allowing God to be a part of it. Jesus reminds me today that if I want to grow, I need to work together with God.
