We may feel small, but we are seeds, not pebbles. The Kingdom of God is a reality where there is abundance and all people have what they need. It is a place where all people have dignity and are empowered to create.
Matthew 13:31-32, the parable of the mustard seed, is a word of encouragement to Jesus' followers that though they may feel small and insignificant in the face of empire, they are indeed seeds of the kingdom.
This word applies to us today. When we as modern day followers or people at MetroHope feel small in the face of suffering and injustice in our world, this word is for us. The mustard seed reminds us that we are the seed and the tree of this just and loving kingdom.
