Mark 4 tells us the kingdom of God is like seed growing even if we’re unaware of its presence. It’s also like a mustard seed which, though the smallest, becomes the largest plant. Don’t underestimate the power of the seed and don't underestimate the scale of the kingdom. At times we may feel overwhelmed by a sense of hopelessness when it seems nothing is happening. Sow faithfully and wait patiently. The seed will triumph because there is power in it, not in us or our eloquent words, or farming skills, or marketing strategies. Trust God to cause the growth and take part in the unstoppable increase of His kingdom.
