As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty. - Matthew 13:23 (NRSV)

When I read today’s parable, I find myself wondering, How can I spread the seeds of faith everywhere I go? We can spread the seeds of faith on any soil and leave the rest to God, but having grown up in a farming community I can’t help but think of...

Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, help us to be intentional in the ways we use our gifts to share our faith with others. Amen.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
