LIKE A MUSTARD SEED
Matthew 13:31-32 “He told them another parable:” The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”
Jesus started with twelve disciples, which grew into seventy and later into many believers in churches around the world.
Sometimes great innovations and movements start out as small ideas. Tiny seeds. But the kingdom of heaven is the greatest and most important of everything. A mustard seed grows into one of the largest garden plants. Eventually, the birds are able to perch in its branches, so large and strong. So we, like the birds are resting comfortably on His limbs. And the branches of that tree grow throughout the world.
WHO AM I?
Hello and welcome to my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I was a medical missionary for almost thirty years in West Africa. Celestial Safaris are devotions about people, places and situations in Africa.
I've worked in Senegal, Liberia, Sierre Leonne, Ghana, Benin, Kenya and Zaire. I spent thirteen years in Nigeria establishing mobile clinics and another thirteen years in Togo.
I took time out to complete a Bachelor's degree in Theology, a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Community Development.
I pray these devotions will bless and encourage you.
