I want to share a teaching of mine that I’ve been blessed to share with more people than i can count , and see an awesome reaction every time. On one special occasion I shared at a church I have been to only once, nobody but the leadership new me, I started and said how Jesus began to teach to a group about the Kingdom of God, and I pull out a bag of Mustard seeds and place one seed in each person’s hand directly in the center. I wait and let them observe the size of it, then I tell them, “Jesus said this mustard seed is a visual way to understand the men and women in the kingdom of God, the Greek word he used to describe this mustard seed is sinapi which is defined as being hurt, this is Jesus understanding us and letting us know the Kingdom of God isn’t full of perfect people, that’s what heaven is for, he understands we hurt and go through real life issues. The mustard seed has a protective shell on it that helps strengthen it to sustain itself during wind, rain, and drought. That seed is me, that seed is you, it is all of us.”
After I shared this, a young man came up to me and began to tell me how he’d gone to that church only three weeks and this was the only thing he understood. He said he’s heard of God speaking to other but in those three weeks he had heard nothing, until he heard this teaching, he thanked me and as I was walking away he said to me, “Now I know that God cares.” Some people just need a visual, physical, tangible love.
