“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 the birds come and perch in its branches.” Matthew 13:31-32
These verses reminded me of reading scripture. We read and think on it little by little, planting the seeds of truth in our mind and heart. The seeds take root and our life begins to be transformed. Small changes, new desires, turning from old things as we grow into something new. We may not even be mindful of what is growing, just that we are more aware of the needs and hurts of those around us. And the thought of our sowing providing something for someone else is extremely beautiful. Just a reminder that our God wastes nothing, even those seeds which have been sown and watered with tears. You never know who may need a place to perch today and be reminded there is hope.
