Luke’s Gospel offers a condensed version of Lord’s Prayer from what we commonly pray in the Gospel of Matthew. Because of it’s brevity, we can clearly see the emphasis on the holiness of God the Father, the Kingdom, trust in God, forgiveness and protection from evil. May we keep praying everyday!
Every day we have the opportunity to learn life lessons, whether it’s good or bad, pleasant or painful. As we follow the Lord we can take these lessons and become more fully sons and daughters of God…preparing for the day when the Lord will call us to the Kingdom of Heaven.
Jesus speaks of the Kingdom of Heaven as a mustard seed that grows slowly and steadily, reminding us to be open to the Lord’s grace in our lives today…so that we continue to grow to full stature as disciples of Christ.
