Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 30 And he said, "To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or what parable shall we use to describe it?

 31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is smaller than all the seeds on the earth,

 32 But when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out great branches; so that the birds of the air may lodge under the shadow of it."4

4 the kingdom of heaven is like the grain of mustard-seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is smaller than all the seeds on the earth. But when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out great branches; so that the birds of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. Mark 4:30-32. So, in the beginning of your seeking the kingdom within, it is smaller than the tares of the world, which are the lusts, pride, worries, cares, and pleasures. But, if the seed of God's kingdom is watered and fed, it grows to be the largest of all; this seed is watered and fed through seeking the Lord, through silent waiting for him, through listening for his voice, hearing his teachings and commands, and obeying them as directed from God.
