Readings of the Day
Jean-Francois Millet, The Sower, 1850. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The kingdom of heaven may be likened
to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
let the gift of your life
continue to grow in us,
drawing us from death to faith, hope, and love.
Keep us alive in christ Jesus.
Keep us watchful in prayer
and true to his teaching,
till your glory is revealed in us.
