Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Kingdom of God”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus compared the “Kingdom of God” to be like a mustard seed that grew into a huge tree that provides shelter for all kinds of birds. Ponder on, “God’s Spirit within our hearts is longing for us to grow with fidelity and zeal into Christ-like disciples that will witness to God’s Kingdom of Eternal Salvation.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it with? It is like a mustard seed which a man took and threw into his garden: it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air sheltered in its branches.’
Another thing he said, ‘What shall I compare the kingdom of God with? It is like the yeast a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour till it was leavened all through.’
