“Another parable He put forth to them, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all the seeds; but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.'” – Matthew 13:31-32 (NKJV)
The least becomes the greatest.
It’s the “Jesus paradox” here. He takes everything we know and flips it around. He shakes up our perspectives and sets us on the road of change.
Thankfully, He does not leave us to walk that road alone.
