A parable of Hot Chocolate

Matthew 13: 31-32

The Mustard Seed and the Leaven

31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32 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.”

This was written as a parable of Hot Chocolate and transformation…

Please pray for the trees growing here and the careful gardening;
Pray for the patient care you need;
Pray for the opportunities you have to do some gardening.

It all began in a garden. Not some wistful, rough and uncultivated wild, a garden.
The soil was rich and deep, the aspect considered, a balance of light and dark.
This was the beginning.

Then a seed was planted, irrigated, and watched as it grew, slowly, slowly.  Many seeds were planted in the garden, and more gardeners were needed.  They cleared more space in the garden.  The trees grew, taking root and stretching to fill the sky.

Some grew with speed, responding well to the rich soil and the attention of the gardeners. Others grew slowly, so slowly that generations would pass before they reached their full height.  Some became sick, or broken, and some were burned by lightning or carelessness or malice.  These trees needed extra care, patience, sometimes pruned right back to start afresh.

In time however, each tree shook in a gentle wind, and seeds scattered to the ground.

And began to grow.
