It isn’t hard to be bad. For David in our first reading, it started with a bit of lust, which became more lust and then adultery and rape and deception and eventually murder. It all unfolded so….easily. It also isn’t hard to be good, like in our gospel. There we see a small little seed growing and germinating into something quite good, and it knew not how. We are meant to be like that. And it isn’t hard. All holiness takes is mustard seed-sized efforts that unfold into something amazing. Please God help us become holy.
