31-32 Another story. “God’s kingdom is like an acorn that a farmer plants. It is quite small as seeds go, but in the course of years it grows into a huge oak tree, and eagles build nests in it.”

-Matthew 13:31-32 The Message

The Mustard Seed

Verse 31: He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a person took and sowed in his field;

Verse 32: and this is smaller than all the other seeds, but when it is fully grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the sky come and nest in its branches.”

Verses 31-32 studies: The mustard seed was the smallest seed used. Jesus used this parable to show that his kingdom has a small starting point, but will grow and produce great results.

Why don’t we use the mindset you have, Father? If you know you start small but will grow and produce incredible results, why can’t we believe in that? I pray that in whatever task you give us that we see that we will be small at the beginning, but only grow to be better following you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
