The images of Jesus in his parables are universal and eternal, speaking to us in every time and place. Indeed, the mustard seed is so small, yet Jesus tells us that if we have faith it will grow and develop as large as the mulberry tree. True faith is not only an intellectual exercise, but bears fruit in action. Our life with God should lead us to responsible use and sharing of our gifts and talents. Let us work on that balance of faith and action, to fulfill the will of God and to bear witness to Jesus.
