It All Starts with a Seed
Think mustard. You mean hotdogs on the beach? Warm doughy giant pretzels? Hamburgers grilled at a family picnic? No. Think smaller. Think about what came before the mustard. It was the seed, right? All the good foods, the good times, the good memories and the good tastes were brought to you initially from a single mustard seed. A seed that multiplied, multiplied again... and then multiplied a thousand times over to create all the wonderful memories and flavors you associate with mustard. Crazy huh?
Jesus knew a lot about the power of the seed. He unwrapped his thoughts in Matthew 13:31-32..."The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches." The principle Jesus is trying to communicate is simple, yet profound. Big transformations come in small packages. In Jesus' mind, the small cadre' of disciples he was pouring his life into, would someday multiply into a kingdom that would influence and transform the world. He was right.
Fact is, scripture is filled with small seeds of thought. When implemented, each seed has the potential of bringing radical change to you and those you touch. This blog is all about discovering those seeds and planting them in your life. As you read each post, expect change... expect surprise...expect to be transformed by putting the mustard seeds of God's truth to work in your life. I can't wait to hear your stories of transformation, hope and purpose!
