Summer Parables: More Seeds!
June 21st, 2016 | John Chandler
Throughout the summer we’re hearing from various voices from within Austin Mustard Seed. Each will discuss a different parable of Jesus. The parable’s are stories Jesus told to describe how God is at work in our world.
Because he lived in agricultural time, Jesus often discussed seeds! This Sunday, we’ll hear a second pararable, from Mark 4:26-29.
“This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
See you Sunday!
