St. Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God caused the growth. Therefore, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who causes the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive wages in proportion to his labor. For we are God’s co-workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.” 1_Cor_3:1-9
Planting and watering. Bringing hope and sharing the Truth of God’s love for all. This is what we are called to do, beloved. We may never see the results of our planting and watering, for some seed takes a long time to germinate and some never do. But all of that is in God’s hands. It’s not ours to worry about, to boast about, or to get depressed about. Just keep on planting and watering, and as St. Paul proclaims – You will receive your wages!
Blessed be God forever!
