“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.” -Matthew 13:31-32
The mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds, yet it grows into massive tree! That is quite a trip for the mustard seed! God wants to take us on trips just like that in our own lives!
Jesus said that is what the Kingdom of Heaven is like. Just as God takes a mustard seed grows it from a small seed to a huge tree, God wants to take us from areas of our lives that we are inadequate in, and grow us into a place where we are blossoming!
Think about this:
God can take us from the least to the greatest
From the dumbest, to the smartest!
From the slowest, to the fastest!
From the poorest, to the richest!
From the hated, to the most liked!
From the depressed, to the happiest!
From a failure, to a winner!
From the ugliest, to the most attractive!
From the least liked, to the most popular!
From a follower, to a leader!
From the ______ to the ________!
I don’t know where you are in life right now. You may feel like a mustard seed. You may feel like the least, the poorest, the slowest, the dumbest, the …you name it. It doesn’t matter what you feel like right now.
What matters is where God can take you if you’ll follow Him. Wherever you are in life right now, start putting God first, and I promise you, you’ll see that area of your life that was the worst, and you’ll watch God make it the best!
