Proper 11- Year A (Matthew 13.24-30,36-43)

If we could see ourselves
the way that others see us…
what would we see?
Strength and Compassion?
Joy, faith and love?

If others could see us
the way we see ourselves…
what would they see?
A mess of feelings?
A mire of hurts?
A pile of guilt –
earned and unearned?

If the world could see us
the way God’s love sees us…
what would it see?
Very human people.
People with hopes and fears.
People with weakness and strength.

Would it look at us and find perfection?
Would it look at us
and find all the answers?
No.
What would it find?
People doing all we can
to live faith in love.
People doing all we can
to worship God!

Alleluia!
Alleluia! Amen!
