Matthew 13:33 [Jesus] told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”
The same rule applies to the kingdom of God: The smallest of things can make the biggest of differences. Although they are tiny, mustard seeds grow into enormous bushes. Just a pinch of yeast leavens a day’s worth of bread. Because these items are so small, we’re often tempted to ask, “Is this enough? Will this little bit amount to anything?” Jesus reassures us that even the smallest seeds of grace, gratitude, and love grow in amazing and abundant ways.
MOVING FORWARD: Try a new recipe this week. Pay close attention to the details.
