Since the inception of the blog Reflections of a Lay Catholic, I have posted reflections on how I see God working in my life and other significant inspirations. Most of those reflections are rather lengthy because most have a story imbedded in them.

I’m venturing today to start something new: short reflections based on the daily scripture that are 100 words or less. I’m calling them simply the “Daily 100”.

I hope they inspire you to grow closer to Christ and to bring others with you. Please let me know what you think. Thank you for reading and may God bless you!

Seasonal Fruit

In today’s Gospel, Mk 11:13, a hungry Jesus sees a fig tree and hopes to find some figs to eat. But, it’s not the season for the tree to be bearing fruit. Trees act only according to their nature given to them by God. On the other hand, us humans have intellects and wills, also given by God, for bringing others to Him. Unlike the fig tree, we can bear fruit 24/7/365. Today is a good day to ask if my apostolate, my prayer and action, is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God. Is yours?
