why ‘mustard seed’?
Faith doesn’t have to be big.
The mustard seed is the tiniest seed found in the Middle East. Mustard seeds are only 1 to 2 millimeters in size. A fast-growing weed, the mustard seed grows up to 10 feet tall in just a few months and as tall as 20 feet fully developed and just as wide. This fast-growing, firmly rooted plant demonstrates the striking example of the potential of a tiny, insignificant seed.
The mustard seed in this parable grew into a big, strong tree, much like how Christianity began, eventually growing into a vast kingdom that encompassed the world and reaches centuries of generations. Jesus’s ministry started from tiny beginnings and grew into something significant and firmly rooted, which many would find shelter in. Faith works the same way as a seed. An unplanted seed can’t do what it was designed to do. But a watered, nurtured, planted seed can grow to immense proportions, spreading its influence far and wide and benefiting those with who it comes into contact.
A seed can do nothing if it is not planted. After that, it can overcome obstacles and even move rocks through its continuous expansion and growth.
In Matthew, an Introduction and Commentary, R.T. France writes, “It is important to observe here that it is not the ‘amount’ of faith which brings the impossible within reach, but the power of God, which is available to even the ‘smallest’ faith.” Where there is faith, there is a way.

A PRAYER FOR YOUR MUSTARD SEED FAITH TO MOVE MOUNTAINS
Dear God, You are the God of the impossible. I am so weak and frail, but you are all-powerful. Thank you that my hope doesn’t rest in the strength of my own faith but in your power. However small it is, keep my faith focused on you alone. Convince and comfort me with your character and promises. Help me align my will with yours. Keep me in your Word so that my faith is rooted in a firm foundation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
