A Mustard Seed

Jesus asked, “How can we show what the kingdom of God is like? To what can we compare it? It’s like a mustard seed planted in the ground. The mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds on earth. However, when planted, it...becomes taller than all the garden plants. It grows...branches that birds can nest in.” Jesus spoke ⌊God’s⌋ word...using many illustrations like these. In this way people could understand what he taught. He did not speak to them without using an illustration. But when he was alone with his disciples, he explained everything to them. (Mark 4:30-34 GW) Jesus used stories and illustrations to help people understand. He didn't complicate or obscure the truth. ©Word-Strong_2013
