Commentary on the Gospel of
Lectio Divina for Sunday 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time
• Mark 4:26–34: Jesus preaches in parables. The explanation of the parable of the sower probably comes from the Markan church. There will be a good harvest even if some seed does not produce. Disciples must reflect in their lives what they believe. Faith grows silently and may start small but can eventually become great.
• The parable of the sower reflects human life. Everyone faces obstacles in the life of faith. Some days are fruitful (thirty, sixty, a hundredfold) and other days are not. Think about what you believe and how you live your faith.
• On a good day, thank God. On a poor day, ask for forgiveness and pray to the Holy Spirit to make the next day more faith-filled.
• Each night examine your conscience on the day that has passed.
