We’re in the midst of looking at some of the most important words ever uttered on this planet: a series of parables in which Jesus reveals the secrets of God’s Kingdom.
Today, we get two parables for the price of one:
“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.”
He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.”
(Matthew 13:31-33; Mark 4:30-32; Luke 13:18-21)
