Read: Mark 4:30-34 and Psalm 119:121-128
The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed. It starts out small, insignificant. It seems as though nothing will come of it. It seems as though it will die before it gets a chance to grow. But the mature mustard plant was the largest herb known to the Jews, and the seeds were the smallest. Jesus tells us that the Kingdom is just like a huge tree comes from these tiny seeds. It doesn’t seem like much, but before it’s done there’s a whole tree.
Think about how this is true in your own life. Have you ever seen something start tiny but grow very large? Is it still growing? Do people find their needs met? What can you learn from this parable? Write your own prayer.
