I was sitting with my cat Blue down in the woods before a pile of brush. I’d just spend an hour dragging limbs of down trees from my yard and piling them with the brush that was already there. For all my efforts the size of the pile barely seemed to have grown.
And yet, out of my sight, the appearance of the yard was a more ordered, inviting place. While I couldn’t see much change in one spot, the results were evident at the other. This is how the kingdom of Heaven is. While we don’t always see the results of our work here, the results will be plain to see in the hereafter.
