3 Parables for impacting our world
PARABLE of the MUSTARD SEED
I think the parable of the Mustard Seed (Mt 13) isn’t only about how much God can do with the smallest amount of faith, but that the Kingdom is about the littlest, seemingly insignificant acts of love and kindness. Sometimes our focus and energies are so invested the the BIG things, but little things have a greater return on investment!
PARABLE of the YEAST
This parable is only one sentence…a lady works yeast into the dough. But we know what happens. Even the smallest agent of change if it is worked into and permeates all parts of the bread, has a maximum impact.
PARABLE of the HIDDEN TREASURE and the PEARL
The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl remind me that if you want to find purpose and happiness in life, find the work that God has called you to. This discovery will change your life. When you discover treasured fruit, pursuits of value, invest all you have in that endeavor. This is the field that God has called you to, so GO FOR IT.
DREAM & PRAY BIG, THEN DO THE LITTLE THINGS!
