Ex 19:1-2, 9-11, 16-20b; Mt 13:10-17

To anyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich. “Use it or lose it.” It’s an apt reminder not only for our physical health but, also for our spiritual wellbeing. We cannot grow in faith, hope and love if we don’t exercise those virtues. It’s just as easy to lapse in our spiritual fitness as it is in our physical. Commitment to a daily routine is vital if we’re to experience any lasting transformation. Without upkeep, gains are short lived. Jesus tells the disciples that the mysteries of the kingdom have been granted to them, but they still work to build understanding. Even elite athletes practice. Our spirituality grows from regular use. Lord, give me the patience and the discipline to build my spiritual strength. PR
