Goodness grows in the world from small seeds

Morning: Psalm 31; Proverbs 23:19-21, 29-24:2; 1 Timothy 5:17-25
Evening: Psalm 35; Matthew 13:31-35

Jesus describes in parables what he calls the “kingdom of heaven” … not in specific terms but enough that you know his vision of human destiny is of something very good.  This “kingdom” will really come here ‘on earth’, but not without challenges.  Even as goodness grows in the world, evil forces may attempt to supplant it … but to no avail.  The parables of mustard seed and yeast express the hope that even small, apparently insignificant, influences may be such a power for good that goodness itself will come to define our lives. Indeed, that’s possible now.
