Mark 4:39-32 Jesus said, "How can I describe the Kingdom of God? What story should I use to illustrate it? It is like a mustard seed planted in the ground. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of all the garden plants; it grows long branches, and birds can make nest in its shade."
This verse said so much to me today. It said to me that even the smallest things we tell others about
God matter. They may be just the seed that grows that in that person the largest. We should never think our words about God do not matter...they do and they grow!
It also tells me that the world will show me big seeds...seeds that look like they could be something...but they won't... Those seeds will probable make weeds in my life. Cause a mess...not be what they promised. But God's promises are quiet and can seem small at first. God gives us all the truth with His promises. God tells us if we do this them this will happen. But God's promises alway grow into something wonderful...no matter how small they may seem at first.
This may now be one of my favorite of Jesus' stories. It says so much..with so few words. Just like the mustard seed it looks like such little information...but then you let its meaning grow it is huge.
