The point of serving is to offer yourself without counting the cost or tallying the results. In Jesus' "parable of the sower," he speaks only about our responsibility to sow, to be out there spreading the news. It is God's responsibility to reap. We are called to plant the seed, but we cannot guarantee the harvest. As mere humans we cannot possibly know the results of our sowing until the eternal harvest, which is brought about by God. We will be judged, not by the results of that harvest, but on the sincerity of our sowing.
Yesterday was the final day of the St. Joseph's Mission during the Winter Recess. Much has been accomplished. Many blessings received. May God bless the work that has been accomplished.
