Luke 13: 18-21
This is a parable about a little growth and creating God’s vast kingdom. In this story, we learn that things that are hidden sometimes can reveal something even greater.
There are small beginnings that grow to surprise many. These surprises grow to be life-giving, slowly but surely.
A mustard seed is a tiny seed that can grow into a plant over six feet tall. Flour combined with yeast can feed an enormous amount of people. These seem to be exaggerations to make a point. No matter how small, it all contributes and makes a difference. This story asks us to be a people of hope to have extravagant faith.
God’s kingdom comes into being with tiny and almost invisible things. A small quantity—a tiny seed, a measure of yeast—turns out to have an enormous effect. What is growing in God’s world today that could surprise us and be something amazing?
