18 Then Jesus asked, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.’
The message of the Bible is that God takes small insignificant things and uses them to great effect. He takes Abraham and his often wretched family and turns them into a great nation. He takes a small shepherd boy and makes him King. He takes five loaves and two fish and feeds a multitude. He takes twelve ordinary men and creates a family that has reached around the globe and lasted over 2000 years. Feel like you have little to offer? In God’s hands that can change the world!
All that I am and all that I have I give to you Lord, use it as you will!
