Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and ‘the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.'” Lk_13:18-21
The Kingdom grows within us, beloved. From a little seed planted by someone else; from a simple verse or passage in the Bible; from the love offered by stranger in times of need; these are the seeds that grow within and we nourish by offering the same kindness, and wisdom to others.
The Kingdom of God grows. It grows stronger in our own hearts with time and nourishment. And it grows by spreading from one person to the next, forming branches and leaves that feed others, just like the growth of a mustard seed.
Come, beloved, and let us grow with the seed of Jesus within us!
