30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” Mark 4:30-32
This parable complements yesterday’s. We don’t know what we’re going to get when we plant these seeds. In fact, the size of the seed is meaningless. The smallest of seeds can produce the greatest of plants.
So, too, the smallest of selfless deeds you do can yield the largest of rewards. I am fond of saying, “You just never know.” It’s true with prayer, great deeds, faith, just about anything in life. When you do what you’re supposed to do, God sees, hears, and acts. The ending may be very different than what you imagined it to be.
Keep the faith, Brothers and Sisters. Your redemption is nearer now than it ever has been.
