Sometimes you hear someone say, "I'll forgive, but I won't forget." The implication is that they will always be ready to bring it up if you do anything like this again. But this is not the way God forgives. Jeremiah says God "will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:34). Indeed, this is the way the Lord has operated throughout scripture, and this is the way God continues to forgive. This is the way we are called to forgive each other. When you think of it, it is amazing that a tiny seed of wheat, planted in fertile soil and given plenty of sun and rain, can grow into a plant that is thousands of times the size of the original seed. But this can only happen if the seed dies, opening and spilling out all of its life force within. The death of the seed pro¬duces the life of the plant. We all have seeds within us that when planted can bear much fruit. But in order for this to happen, we have to break the husk of self-centeredness, let our selfishness die, and focus on the needs of others. Jesus calls us to obedience and service: "Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be" (John 12:26). He himself provides a clear example in today's Gospel. Though troubled, he accepts God's will. Though facing death, his focus is on others, addressing God and then addressing the crowd.
