Exodus 24: 3-8, Ps. 50, Matthew 13: 24-30


The quest for holiness is not without its weeds. They spring from the soil of life and grow up alongside my goodness. Jesus is saying that this is a normal situation. I need patience with myself to deal with my human nature in which good and bad co-exist. Holiness is not found in isolated perfection, the perfect garden of life where a weed would not dare to grow. It is found in being human, in the ongoing struggle to be good where badness seems to flourish too.
