Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Kingdom: In today’s Gospel, Jesus explained about the “Kingdom of Heaven” with the images of the mustard seed and yeast. Ponder on, “We are very blessed to have the gift of faith that reveals Jesus our Saviour offers eternal life. If we love God, with His Presence we are never alone and helpless.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus put another parable before the crowds, ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the biggest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air can come and shelter in its branches.’
He told them another parable, ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour till it was leavened all through.’
In all this Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables; indeed, he would never speak to them except in parables. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: I will speak to you in parables, unfold what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.
