Mustard seed is so small
In today's Gospel (Mark 4:26-34) Jesus tells the parable of the mustard seed to try to explain the Kingdom of God. "It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches so that the birds of the sky can dwell it its shade."
