Hebrews 10:32-39, Ps.37, Mark 4:26-34

The God of small beginnings

We worship a God of infinite greatness, yet this great, almighty God seems content with small beginnings. Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of God does not start with great fanfares, but begins quietly, almost imperceptibly, as seeds grow. Seeds are so tiny, so insignificant, yet some grow into great trees. Surely there is hope for us in this. We often feel our efforts to live as Christians, to witness to what we believe, are pathetic, of little use to anyone. Today’s gospel gives us hope. No seed is too small, no effort is wasted. We may never see the results, but God will bring those seeds to harvest in his own way.
