God’s neighborhood is like:

  • A mustard seed
  • Yeast
  • A merchant in search of fine pearls
  • A net thrown into the sea
  • The master of a household

 You get it, right?



This week’s Bible reading from Matthew 13: 31-33, 44-52 gives offers opportunities to get confused and then start thinking. Here’s are a few thoughts for pondering:

  • The mustard seed: It seems so little – but has huge potential
  • Yeast: Favors rising over falling
  • The merchant: Might miss other valuable things in the search
  • The net: It includes everyone.
  • The master: A cultural misstep that forgets about the worth of all.
And the possibilities of thought are endless.
