The Book of Genesis describes an incident where Jacob wrestled with a spirit for a whole night and in the morn-ing that spirit turned out to be God. What a perfect icon for prayer! A human being and God, wrestling in the dust of this earth! Doesn't that accurately describe the human struggle?

We would do well to integrate this, the concept of wres-tling with God, into our understanding of faith and pray-er. We honor neither ourselves nor the scriptures when we make things too simple. Human will doesn't bend easily, nor should it, and the heart has complexities that need to be respected, even as we try to rein in its more possessive longings. God, who built us, understands this and is up to the task of wrestling with us and our re-sistance.

The classical mystics speak of something they call “being bold with God”. This “boldness”, they suggest, comes not at the beginning of the spiritual journey, but more towards the end of it, when, after a long period of fideli-ty, we are intimate enough with God to precisely be “bold”, as friends who have known each other for a long time have a right to be.

That's a valuable insight: After you have been friends with someone for a long time, you can be comfortable with expressing your needs to him or her and in the context of a long, sustained relationship unquestioning reverence is not necessarily a sign of mature intimacy. Old friends, precisely because they know and trust each other, can risk a boldness in their friendship that young-er, less mature, friendship cannot. That is also true in our relationship with God. God ex-pects that, at some point, we will kick against his will and offer some resistance. But we should lay out our hearts in honesty. Jesus did.

Word Search Puzzle

Do you know that the mustard you put on your hot dog comes from a tiny seed? It is made by grinding a lot of seeds into a powder and adding a few other ingredients.

However, even though the mustard seed is one of the smallest of all seeds, when it is planted in the ground, it grows into a plant so large that birds can perch on its branches and build their nests!

How is that scenario like the kingdom of God that Jesus talks about in today's Gospel? Well, when Jesus first began His earthly ministry, He had no followers. The Bible tells us that Jesus was walking along the shore of the sea of Galilee when He saw two fishermen, Peter and his brother Andrew, casting their nets. "Come, follow me," Jesus said to them. They immediately followed Jesus. As they contin-ued on their way, they saw two other brothers, James and John, mending their nets. Jesus called them and they imme-diately left their nets and followed Him. One by one, Jesus called his disciples until there were twelve of them. That is still a pretty small beginning, isn't it? Jesus sent out the twelve and they brought others to Jesus, and the kingdom of God grew. From a very small beginning the kingdom of God has grown and grown until it has spread over the entire earth today.

You and all of us are part of Jesus' kingdom. Let us pray that God will help us continue to grow in faith and trust so that we will reach great heights in our lives as we share our love and knowledge of Jesus with others.
