In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells the parable of the mustard seed.
This teaching is meant to show us that even the smallest amount of faith can produce great results.
Just as a mustard seed is small but produces a large tree, our faith can grow and produce good fruit in our lives.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that birds come and perch in its branches.” -Matthew 13:31-32
This parable is one of several that Jesus tells in Matthew 13 to illustrate what the kingdom of heaven is like.
In this parable, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a mustard seed.
The mustard seed was well known to be the smallest of all seeds.
Despite its small size, when it grows, it becomes the largest of garden plants and even has enough branches to support birds.
In less than two minutes, Jesus teaches us an important truth about faith.
Just as a mustard seed can produce a large tree, our faith can produce good works in our lives.
We don’t need much faith to get started; even a small amount can go a long way.
As we exercise our faith and trust God more, our faith will grow and we will be able to do even more good works for His kingdom.
