Value of small things

“Great things have small beginnings.

Every downpour is just a raindrop;

every fire is just a spark;

every harvest is just a seed;

every journey is just a step;

because without that step there will be no journey;

without that raindrop there can be no shower;

without that seed there can be no harvest.”

A Parable of Jesus

He also said, ‘With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.’ 
Mark 4: 30 - 32

  1. For some reason the parable reminds me of child rearing. They grow, blossom and spread their wings.

    1. And in my case go on to have more children of their own now growing and blossoming and spreading their wings!
