Lessons from a tiny seed

St. Luke 13: 18-19
The Parable of the Mustard Seed.

dv031678_xs19  It is like a mustard seed that a person took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and ‘the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.’”

In this Parable, Jesus explains that while the Kingdom of God, right here on earth –  begins as tiny as a mustard seed, when the seed of faith if planted it grows and spreads across vast space.


A portion of this mornings reading was from the book of Luke.

In the reading of

St. Luke 17:6

Saying of Faith. 5 And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”  6 The Lord replied, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to [this] mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

There are several references to the small size of the mustard seed and what it can do for us when we plant ourselves in faith.  With God all things are possible, it if it His will.  We remember when we pray, if we are compelled to ask for something that we do this in a way that honors God.  “God if it is your will I ask that . . .”.

Do you place your hope in your faith?  Do you trust God’s love to help you through your growth in life, in Him?  It is an ongoing process.

Trusting in Him.

      1. The bad? In this world, I’m afraid sometimes the bad is almost a given, the good almost underrated. Which makes choosing it more meaningful :-)
        And yes, I’ve been a bit muse-less. Hopefully that’s over…

      2. Yes, I agree. It is a given. There is truth in knowing that if we did not know the bad, we would never know and be able to appreciate the good.
        – I look forward to your posts.
