Mark 4:26-34

The kingdom of God is likened to the seed and its innate ability to grow. Even the smallest seed will flourish and become a bush with branches large enough to provide shade and shelter for the birds. Jesus spoke in parables to help the people understand his message.

I realize that I must do all I can to provide circumstances in which your kingdom will grow. I am not capable of doing that without you. Come, Holy Spirit.
