In this parable about the mustard seed, Jesus shares that faith begins as a seed.
Faith in God is planted in the soil of our hearts and cultivated by the Spirit, and over time, it produces the character of God, in us.
Sometimes we do not feel inclined to pray because often, prayer just looks like a seed.
But through the eyes of faith, we need to see our prayers for what they are; that means that we need to be thinking about what they will look like, when God answers them.
God uses our faith as the source of His blessings but the prayer is the way that the source gets into the soil; because Jesus uses this parable to show that the kingdom of heaven, for you, may have small beginnings but it will grow and produce great results.
