Matthew 13:31-32. Birds of the Air. 14 May 2023

Mat 13:31 He put another parable before them,
'The kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed
which a man took and sowed in his field.
32 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.'

When I would have a field and I sow mustard seeds, I expect that I mess up my field. It will be filled big shrubs. Nothing else would grow in my field. It even would attract the birds for shelter.
Why would I sow one single mustard seed? I better would plant it at a qualified location.
Now, the parable has a 'so that', explaining that the sower had a purpose. The kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed given into the hand of a man, perhaps Jesus Himself. The birds, perhaps you and me, should find shelter.


Jesus, I pray for 'mustard' seeds producing shelter for mankind.
