Jesus put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.” Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet:
“I will open my mouth to speak in parables; I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 13:31-35 Mustard Seed The soil is resistant we are afraid and to all of that he says go ahead anyway. This little commitment will blossom and soar it will overwhelm you and become your heart. Today we are broken there are more tomorrows more canvasses aching voices needing songs. Plant deep and trust a little more each day we will climb together rising from the depths.
