Planting seeds is an act of hope. We cannot predict the results of the seeds that we sow. Last week we discussed the parable of the sower who generously spreads seeds on all types of ground, waiting in hope for a bountiful harvest. This week we will read the parable of the mustard seed. It reminds us that great things can spring from small beginnings. Just as Jesus began his earthly ministry calling his disciples one by one, a seed starts small and alone in the earth. His ministry grew and now influences hearts and souls throughout the entire world. Likewise, the mustard seed grows into a tree that provides a dwelling place for many types of birds.
You are invited to join us Tuesday at 11am on Facebook for our Parable Picnic VBS series. Whether you have been with us every week or this will be the first time, you are welcome!
