It Starts With a Seed
In God’s hands, great things come from small beginnings. A little shepherd boy becomes a king. A virgin gives birth to the redemption of all nations. A baby born in a manger in Bethlehem becomes the Savior of the world. Over and over again, God uses the small and seemingly inconsequential to showcase His power and bring about His glory. Jesus even chooses to illustrate the greatness of the Kingdom of Heaven with something as small as a mustard seed. In God’s economy, we are all seeds–never too insignificant to be used and made into something greater for God’s glory.
31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 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.”
Practice The Way of Jesus:
Do you ever wish you were a part of something more? We all want our lives to be meaningful, but despite our best efforts, it’s easy to feel unfulfilled and unable to make an impact. What if we could partner with God to life a life of impact? What if we asked God to help us to become a "tree.” This week, ask God to show you how you can become a tree. Consider asking someone in this group to pray for you and hold you accountable as you pursue a life of impact.
