The Kingdom Breaks through in You to Break Forth from You (Matthew


The Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast.

“He told them another parable: “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.”

33 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.” 34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not

say anything to them without using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was

spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things

hidden since the creation of the world.”

Through faith and prayer the wall that separates heaven and earth begins to thin

until the kingdom of God pierces through into your life. It only takes a pin hole for

the Kingdom of God to be planted in you and to grow until it becomes a mature

tree where so many others find nurture and care and rest. In that space their

faith grows until the kingdom of God can pierce through into them as well. This is

the good and reproductive work of disciples making disciples.

Question: Have you allowed that seed to grow and mature in you? If so, how

are you spreading your branches to invite God’s beloved who both do and do not

yet know Him to a place where they may find rest and experience God?

Do you feel you need help or want to make a more deliberate effort to do this? -
