Scripture – “He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.”
Observation – Jesus is teaching on the kingdom of God. He uses two parables. One is a mustard seed and the other is like leaven in bread. Jesus is showing the people and the disciples that even small measures of faith can have great impact. A small mustard seed grows to become a tree towering high.
Application – Faith is powerful. Conviction and faith in God has massive impact on the world around me and even if all I can muster up is small faith in a moment God is faithful to grow fruit. Today, I don’t want to toil in my own strength but instead trust in the God who can take faith and make it seen.
Prayer – God thank You for how You produce fruit through us. Thank You for Your faithfulness to me.
