This past week we studied the parable of the mustard seed and yeast from Matthew 13:31-33. Small beginnings, big results.
"The kingdom of heaven begins with one person: Jesus, like a seed, is placed in the ground (in death), but the result is an immense people of God. People from all nations will come and "perch" in the "branches" of the kingdom." Peter Enns
