The Mustard Seed

I LOVE parables! I bought a book of parables in college that challenged my thought process and my expected reality. A good parable presents really BIG ideas in small, bite size, and sometimes confusing stories that you can easily visualize. Jesus is the perfect example of how to tell a good parable. We’ll be looking at some of His parables each week. I wanted to start with a short parable in Mark 4:30-32. Many of Jesus’ parables talk about the Kingdom of God. Take a look at the parable of the Mustard Seed and see how Jesus compares the humble beginnings and incredible growth to the Kingdom of God. Be encouraged that sharing the gospel may seem slow and unfruitful but today there are more than 2 Billion Christians!
