“He told them another parable: `The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 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.
Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading: Matthew 11-13.
My task as a believer is to rightly represent God.
Today’s verses make a crucial point in the regard: I must be willing to serve Him in any capacity.
My willingness opens unlimited avenues for God.
In this parable, a tiny seed becomes a large tree that birds benefit from.
My impact for God is directly connected to my no-strings-attached willingness to please Him.
We are all put in places where a Godly mustard seed needs to be planted. That “seed” should be us.
This continues the theme of being filled with Him ‘round the clock. I must connect to Him and tremble if that connectedness wanes. I must be in His presence wherever I’m at, ready to be “planted.”
“O Lord, great parable. I see the potential that a Godly person can have in a dark place. I want to be a worthy Godly person wherever I am located. Guide me, O thou great Jehovah. I need You, Father.”
Will we reduce self so that God can plant us in needy places?
