Change my heart O God

We can see another example of Jesus' familiarity with his environment when he took a plant growing in his area as a simile of the Kingdom of Heaven. The tiny seed of the species of mustard in the Middle East can develop into a fully grown plant with branches for the birds to roost and seeds that are good to eat or that can produce more plants. Let us open ourselves so that the Holy Spirit can transform our littleness.
