This Sunday we’ll be reading Luke 13:18-21.
Jesus compares the advancing rule of God over the hearts of people to tiny seeds and yeast. Very small things that lead to a greater presence and influence. Why do you suppose Jesus told this parable right on the heels of healing the woman who was doubled over? What connection do you make?
If you were to consider what is most effective in the church right now, what would it be? How do you measure effectiveness- by size or number or monetary value…or something else? How would Jesus’ parable effect your thoughts on what constitutes success?
Just some quick thoughts before Sunday. Please pray for Ralph Marinachi, Sue Watson and P.J. Watner, they’re all pretty sick and in need of God’s healing touch. Of course, don’t forget to pray for the people of Japan.
