From Matthew 13:31-35…
“The Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.”
I think God plants a seed in me. Maybe it’s a thought I am wrestling with. I am home on vacation and I have a delivery tomorrow. I keep thinking I should go down and arrange the den, clean and make it easier for the delivery. When I woke up and after prayer, I forced myself to go to the den and start.
The seed was planted and if I am open to God’s Divine Grace, it will grow. A simple thought ended up being 5 hours of work blessed by God. Maybe it’s not the best analogy but I can see by reading this passage today that God wants to grow in us abundantly. I think He needs our faith and willingness to cooperate with His grace to allow our meager efforts to grow into something very beautiful for the glory of God.
