Gerhard Lohfink, in his book “Jesus of Nazareth” writes that Jesus used parables about growing things for a reason. Growing things are silent.
Such is the reign and working of God in this world. It can be silent, subtle, but then we notice the blooms and WOW!
What is growing in my life? I couldn’t tell you right now, but give me a bit, and I will share them.
God is great that way!
