BIBLE STUDY

THE FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

   Mark 4: 26- 34     Small Beginnings

The parable of the mustard seed was a reply to the question: Could the kingdom really grow from such humble beginnings? Mark’s reply was that the little cell of disciples could indeed become such a kingdom. Like the first parable (the seed growing of itself) this is also a very encouraging little parable.

It seems that what life intends to be great it first makes small. Perhaps that is where we go wrong. We’re too impressed by the large. We tend to despise the small. Yet look at the atom. It is the smallest unit of matter, yet what energy it contains.
