In our Gospel today, Mark 4:26-34, Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed. His followers were hoping for something much bigger. They wanted a savior that would come in and free them of the Roman domination that oppressed them. Someone to come in with a mighty sword and rid the world of it’s wickedness.
Jesus chose a perfect example of the mustard seed. The smallest and most humble of seeds, yet it grows to be the largest of plants. The Kingdom of God started with the ordinary and humble fishermen of Galilee. It grew by Jesus walking from town to town healing and calling his followers, and is now over 2.5 billion Christians in the world today.
This is what Jesus can do with the tiniest bit of faith. It can change the world. When we feel God’s call to further his Kingdom, and we hesitate because we do not feel that we have enough faith, let us remember the mustard seed. It only takes a tiny bit of faith to change the world!
