Scripture - Mark 4

Observation - Jesus used the parable of a mustard seed to show how God delights in small things. A mustard is about the size of a pinhead but can grow into a large plant. Abraham became the father of many nations and Jesus offers salvation to the world. In God’s kingdom, simple truth takes hold, small faith flourishes and phenomenal growth takes place.

Application - Where is your faith at today? Do you spend your days worrying, or do you let your faith carry you through day-to-day. By spending time in the word and in prayer your faith grows from a small mustard seed, to something enormous.

Prayer - Lord, I cannot see you but I know that you are there. I trust that you hold me in the palm of your hand. Help me to live every day with this perspective. Help me to understand that even if I have a little bit of faith, you can move mountains with it. Help my faith to grow every day. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
