The Kingdom of Heaven is like… Part Two

Matthew 13:31-32 (ESV)
31  He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field.
32  It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

God’s kingdom may not appear to be a big thing.  On one level it does not appear as large as nation states or corporations.  But look again!  The kingdom is growing, it is becomes THE tree — the infrastructure of all of these other structures.  Travel around the world and you will find Christ followers living out kingdom values in Microsoft, Apple, New Zealand, and Egypt.

Leaders — do not just look at a map or advertising — look, rejoice, pray, lead with seeing what the Kingdom IS and what it will be becoming.
