Like a Mustard Seed

Like a Mustard Seed

Richard Rohr – What the Mystics Know

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed.  It starts small, but it keeps growing.  So keep growing.

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 seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.

For much of my life I have been searching for ways to become closer to God.  With this thought , Rohr helps me know that I just have to keep going through life and it will happen.  There is nothing I can do to make it happen, but it will happen.  Rohr says “For the Kingdom to happen, however, we have to walk the entire journey.”

Keep walking the entire journey.
