Gospel: Luke 13:18-21
“What is the Kingdom of God like?”
The kingdom of God is like a man who sows a mustard seed in his garden and it grows until it is so large that the birds could nest in its branches. The point is that a little seed could produce this unusually large tree, so large that even the birds could find shelter there.
Jesus will triumph through the sowing of the seed of the gospel through us. Our garden consists of the people with whom we have contact, to influence them for the sake of the kingdom of God. We should desire to see God use us to produce a harvest for Him in our garden. Our garden is now global, so we are able to touch so many lives with one click.
The parable of the yeast is exactly the same analogy. Let us pray that we the harvesters, grow our tree and multiply tthe fruit of our discipleship a thousandfold.
