Hidden in every task, even in the mundane, is an opportunity for love to be uncovered; for God who is Love, is in all things. Our negative attitude towards work may come from a belittling view of the world around us and an enlargement of our own ego. We belittle things that don’t challenge us; tasks that demean our position; and efforts that make us uncomfortable.
On the flip side, many of us also belittle ourselves, and get much affected by how others criticize us. We may become too overwhelmed by the task at hand to the point of fear and paralysis. We find ourselves constantly faced by a “Goliath”; not realizing the “David” within.
Jesus sees something big in us, even if others belittle us. He beholds something great in others even if we belittle them. He takes notice of a mustard seed and tells us that the biggest thing unimaginable, the Kingdom of Heaven, is such.
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.” (Mt.13:32)
