Break Up Your Fallow Ground!

Hosea 10:12

Sow for yourselves righteousness,reap the fruit of steadfast love;break up your fallow ground,for it is the time to seek the Lord,that he may come and rain salvation upon you.

God want us to reap blessings, but we must sow.  What happens in our lives so often is the soil of our daily lives is undisturbed, we carry on undisturbed, quiet to the point where the soil of our heart develops a crust that does not permit the word of God to grow and bear fruit. Break up the fallow ground of your heart by examining your conscience, then go to meet the Lord in the sacrament of penance.
