The Kingdom of Heaven is Like…A Mustard Seed

Matthew 13:31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”

Ever felt insignificant?  I do all the time.  I wonder what I’m really doing or what I’m actually accomplishing for the Kingdom.

Little bits of faithfulness here and there, but it seems like it doesn’t make a difference in this world.  Yet, Jesus tells us that this is what the Kingdom of Heaven is like.  It’s like a mustard seed.  So my eyes are fixed on the horizon for the mustard tree and perching birds that God will bring as He grows the Kingdom of Heaven through my little mustard seed.

Evidence of God’s work:  From small beginnings, something spectacular!
