Why the Mustard Seed Matters

"He said, therefore, 'What is the kingdom of God like, and to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.'"
Luke 13:18-19

When we receive the gift of faith into our hearts and the kingdom of God enters us, it's like the mustard seed where such an incredible and beautiful source of life comes from this small little seed. In a similar way, we will truly blossom when we allow the kingdom of God to blossom within us. It's not something that happens overnight but over time rather. When it happens, we become more beautiful and more radiant, and our lives become something of power and of love. Through us, we then become that mustard seed for the world, where we then bring life to the rest of the world, and the world can transform and become the kingdom of God. Allow the kingdom of God to grow and to blossom within your heart. Let's pray.

Lord, thank you so much for this day, and we thank you for the gift of faith. We thank you for the gift of inviting us to participate in your divine life and to experience your kingdom here on earth already, Lord. Help us to bring that kingdom to those around us. Help us to blossom and to allow the kingdom to blossom within us, Lord. We pray all of this in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

All right, everyone. Get out there and make it the best day ever.

Your brother on the journey,
