Mark 4:31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.

Behold this image of the kingdom: a giant bush with thousands of mattresses hanging from its branches! What a lovely reminder that the kingdom is not separate from us, way up where we cannot see. The kingdom of God is here on earth each and every time we participate in actions of mercy, grace, love and peace.
