He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds[b] of flour until it worked all through the dough.”
Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet:
“I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”[c]
Just a small amount of faith is enough to do mighty things with God.
When I look at a field that has nothing on it and the seeds of corn are planted in the ground, can I see the corn stalks above the ground? No, but I have faith that the corn in the ground will soon be visible and create nice size plants yielding of its kind.
The same is with God. It takes only a small amount of faith but that small amount of faith grows and multiplies into larger and larger amounts of faith. We live by faith and not by sight.
Today instead of several verses I will take this passage of scripture and meditate upon the spiritual meaning of the parable about the mustard seed and the yeast mix with the dough.
I just realized something today I have never known but we are being shown and taught hidden things from the kingdom of God at his timing and in his way.
So heavenly father let me continue in faith and proclaim to all the world how great thou art.
