The Parable of the Growing Seed
He also said, “The kingdom of God is like someone who spreads seed on the ground. He goes to sleep and gets up, night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. By itself the soil produces a crop, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. And when the grain is ripe, he sends in the sickle because the harvest has come.”
There is a certain mystery about the kingdom – about the sowing, growing and harvest. Something that is beyond human comprehension and observation. The work of God that happens behind all that we can see, hear and do will always remain a mystery.
A clear reminder that I don’t know it all and I never will.
