XXXI. To hand each day to Christ, that offering small

He proposed another parable to them. “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the ‘birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.'” Matthew 13:31-32

To hand each day to Christ: that off’ring small

Will gladden more His Heart than grandest deed.

The trials frustrating that my progress stall:

If naught but these have I, He’ll make them seed

And grow from them my sanctity, my life,

Unless from Him, in shame, I do withhold

My stumblings and my falls, my pain, my strife.

Though hidden, He will find them. So be bold!

If I lack feats to offer, what’s the cause?

My cowardice? My weakness? My foul pride?

He came for sinners troubled. I’ll not pause

In giving Him this wait I can’t abide.

The lost, frustrated, frightened He will seek.

Such is His way. So merciful! So meek!
