July 02, 2023 | Catherine Cichon
A short parable that conveys a powerful message about faith and the growth of the Kingdom of God.
In the parable, Jesus tells his disciples that the Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed, although small in size, it grows into a large tree or shrub, providing shelter and shade for birds. The main point of the parable is that the Kingdom of God starts small but eventually expands and grows into something significant. It highlights the idea that even though the beginnings may seem insignificant or unimpressive, through time and nurture, they can flourish and have a great impact.
