Obedience to God gives us grave to bear fruit
By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

WEEKEND SPIRITUAL DIGEST: 1 Cor. 15:35-37.42-49, Lk. 8:4-15. In today's first reading, Paul corrects the impression that resurrection is a resuscitation of the present body. For him, the risen body will be a body no doubt, but will be a qualitative and transformed one that will be more glorious, powerful and incorruptible. Paul demonstrates this with an example taken from agriculture that makes us understand that the body we now possess is kept living by a natural life-principle.

This transformed body will however, yields fruit if the body lives the life of Christ. The parable of the sower in today's Gospel provides us with the opportunity to bear fruit by obedience to the words of God. To keep the commandments of God is a sign of freedom. It is an expression of our freedom to make a choice for the way we want to live our lives. Obedience to the word of God provides the resources for our preparation. Today, we are challenged to make our hearts ready to listen to the words of God and act on them. When we do this, our lives bear fruits beyond our own wildest imaginations.

May the Lord help us to be attentive and obedient to the words of God! Amen!! Good morning and Happy Weekend!!!
