Daily Prayer & Reading for January 27, 2023

God of mercy and love, through the preaching of Your missionaries You brought the Good News of Christ to people who had not known Him. May their good works make our faith grow stronger. Amen.

Mark 4: 26-34

Jesus said to the crowds:
“This is how it is with the Kingdom of God;
it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
and would sleep and rise night and day
and the seed would sprout and grow,
he knows not how.
Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
for the harvest has come.”
He said,
“To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God,
or what parable can we use for it?
It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
With many such parables
he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
Without parables he did not speak to them,
but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.

Dios de misericordia y amor, a través de la predicación de tus misioneros llevaste la Buena Nueva de Cristo a personas que no lo habían conocido. Que sus buenas obras hagan que nuestra fe se fortalezca. Amén.

Mc 4, 26-34

En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a la multitud: “El Reino de Dios se parece a lo que sucede cuando un hombre siembra la semilla en la tierra: que pasan las noches y los días, y sin que él sepa cómo, la semilla germina y crece; y la tierra, por sí sola, va produciendo el fruto: primero los tallos, luego las espigas y después los granos en las espigas. Y cuando ya están maduros los granos, el hombre echa mano de la hoz, pues ha llegado el tiempo de la cosecha”.

Les dijo también: “¿Con qué compararemos el Reino de Dios? ¿Con qué parábola lo podremos representar? Es como una semilla de mostaza que, cuando se siembra, es la más pequeña de las semillas; pero una vez sembrada, crece y se convierte en el mayor de los arbustos y echa ramas tan grandes, que los pájaros pueden anidar a su sombra”.

Y con otras muchas parábolas semejantes les estuvo exponiendo su mensaje, de acuerdo con lo que ellos podían entender. Y no les hablaba sino en parábolas; pero a sus discípulos les explicaba todo en privado.
