Kingdom of God… Mustard Seeds

01/19/2009    

Happy Birthday Connor, my son turned five today. It's amazing to me how quickly one can grow in such a short time. I was contemplating this as I read today.

Matthew 13

    The Mustard Seed and the Leaven

 31He put another parable before them, saying, (AN) "The kingdom of heaven is like(AO) a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32It 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."

 33He told them another parable. (AP) "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in(AQ) three measures of flour, till it was(AR) all leavened."

        I know Jesus talked about being ware of the leaven of the Pharisees. However, in this context Jesus is pointing to how leaven can benefit as well. The Kingdom of God is a huge thing. You cannot fathom and explore every nook and cranny of it's function in one lifetime. This is one of the reasons we must learn from those who have come before and build from their level up.


 

        It's amazing to me how fast one can grow in the things of God. Alvin may get saved and stay at the same level of growth for ten years. John may have gotten saved at the same service and just sprouted wings and flew into the things of God. Ten Years later Alvin hasn't changed much, still struggling with the same things. John has become a full time pastor or worker or taken new and innovated ideas into the marketplace and revolutionized things with God's ideas… But if in the next ten years John pushes no harder but only maintains and Alvin pushes harder into the things of God, the end result twenty years after the two were saved is that Alvin is doing more for God… What's My point?


 

        It starts small. In fact the Kingdom of God starts at the same exact level for every human being; the incorruptible seed of the Word. Everyone must be born again to enter into the Kingdom of God. Therefore we all have the same entry point. We've all been dealt the measure of faith.

Romans 12:2-4 

(English Standard Version)

2(A) Do not be conformed to this world,[a] but be transformed by(B) the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may(C) discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.[b]

Gifts of Grace

 3For(D) by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you(E) not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment,(F) each according to(G)
the measure of faith that God has assigned.


 

        To each person on the planet God has dealt the same tools. Jesus compared them to talents parted to servants. Some had more to work with, some had less. All were judged by the results of what they did at their level. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word! So God has dealt to each person on the planet, no matter what level they are at, the same measure of faith. The measure is called "BIBLE". There are those who have more access to it then others. Yet those with less access may do more with what they get. You have been given the Word of God. Sow it into your heart. Speak it with your mouth… let it grow inside of you.


 

        As it grows it will become the mighty tree inside of you. You will become a tree of Righteousness planted by the waters. You may not think it's much. What does reading this chapter today have to do with me fulfilling great and mighty things I don't even know about yet? The seed may start as the smallest, most misunderstood, seemingly insignificant seed in the garden… just wait! As it grows it becomes the largest tree in the whole garden! Why? Seed… Time… Harvest… It's the plan of God from Genesis to Revelations.


 

        There may be some action, some step, some plan, something that God's been telling you to do. It seems small. It seems like it has nothing to do with the crisis you are facing now. You want a solution to your now problem and God is trying to deal with tomorrow inside of you. Take it… You NEVER know where it might lead… except that you will ALWAYS know that God's Will for your life will lead to more BLESSING than you can imagine or even keep… His plan is to turn you into a Hose of Blessing, not a water tower! Start small…

  • Did He tell you to write a book? Start with a basic writing on what you want to write about… set a date every week to work on it for one hour…
  • Tour the world as a musician? What songs are you writing? What steps have you taken to develop your skill?
  • Become a doctor? What classes are you taking?


     


     

What has God called you to do; but it seems so big and immense that you cannot fathom how you could ever do it? That's easy… plant a mustard seed. Do SOMETHING… anything… by the Leading of the Holy Spirit… that will start you toward the Call of God on your life… You'll be amazed at were you've come down the road…


 

I know I am… I never imagined being a father of a five year old could be this amazing… challenging… and thrilling…


 

Be BLESSED (Empowered to Prosper)

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
