Looking for Opportunity to Sow Seed
He told them another parable: “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.”
1. God Works Through Ordinary People
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
God is not as concerned with our past performance as much as our present willingness.
How would you rate your present level of willingness (1 to 10)?

3. God's Kingdom Grows Exponentially
The seed eventually becomes a tree - giving life to others
The Lord told Abram, “Leave your country, your relatives, your family home, and travel to the country I'm going to show you. I will make you the ancestor of a great nation and I will bless you. I will make sure you have a great reputation and that you are a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you; I will curse those who curse you. Everyone on earth will be blessed through you.”
This is the list of the ancestors of Jesus Christ, a descendant of David, who was a descendant of Abraham.
You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:26-29)
Who do you need to thank for sowing good seed into your life?
