A Mustard Seed

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.

Looking at Advent as the coming of the kingdom of heaven.

It is easy for us to overlook the power of the kingdom of heaven. Compared (at the time) to the mighty and powerful Rome, what Jesus offered appeared tiny and insignificant.

Yet, when it is planted within people it grows large and gives shelter. And, indeed, 300 years later, it conquered Rome (sort of).
