So how big a Mustard Seed? And what is a Mustard Tree? There are varying views on whether or not a mustard tree actually exists. In Matthew 13:31-32 Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 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.” He says that a large tree is the result of such a small seed – a mustard seed. The tree is so large that birds perch in its branches. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus again tells what greatness GOD does with a person who has faith in Him. The purpose of this blog is show what great (even impossible – like make a tree out of a mustard plant) things God can do – not what I can grow.
