Reading: Matthew 13:31-32 (Click to read text)
Ahhhh. The Parable of the Mustard Seed. What a problem this is. I know what size a mustard seed is. I’ve seen them. But, I’ve never seen a mustard shrub or tree. Well, let’s just fix this.
This summer I planted 6 rows of corn—3 white and 3 yellow. Those are not very big seeds. In fact, they looked rather precarious lying there in the shallow ditch. But I covered them up knowing that most of them would emerge. And they did!! A little weeding, good rain fall, nice warm sun…
Oklahoma!! The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, and it looks like its climbing clear up to the sky!!
I can’t wait. This is going to be a bumper crop of corn. Nothing better than going out to the corn patch, pulling a few ears, husking them and tossing them in the waiting pot of boiling water. --Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff.
