This week, we heard from Luke’s Gospel:
Jesus said to his disciples to look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers. …
So do not start worrying: Where will my food come from? Or my drink/ or my clothes/ Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. Instead, be concerned about everything else with the Kingdom of God and he will provide all these other things.
So do not worry about tomorrow; it will have enough worries of its own. There is no need to add to the troubles each day brings.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus is telling us that really we can’t grow to be the person he wants us to be if we’re always worrying. We should be able to trust in God and trust one another. Sometimes though, for whatever reason, we are unable to trust some people. We should pray for people who aren’t able to trust anyone and ask God in our own hearts to help them find someone they can talk to, someone they will be able to trust.
This week’s mission, therefore, is to show trust in others, including God.
Let us know in the comments how you have achieved this week’s mission.
