Whatever You Do, Do All To The Glory Of God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through
him. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God;
And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake,
in which the Lord your God has blessed you.And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your sons and your daughters
; And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God in all that you undertake.whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength
that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God.
And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God and in accordance with the law and the commandments, seeking
his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered.In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
6 The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives
thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. 7 For none of us lives to
himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then,
whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
col 3:17, col 3:23, 1Pe 4:11, Deut 12:7,12,18, 2 Chr 31:20,21,Prov 3:6, Rom 14:6-8,
And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed
in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one
will be justified.
Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by
faith.” Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope
of the glory of God.
Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith. For we walk by faith,
not by sight.
He died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.I
can do all things through him who strengthens me. Who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is
inexpressible and filled with glory, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but
for the will of God.
And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever
does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that
you may know that you have eternal life.
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory
of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. These all died in faith, not having received
the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and
exiles on the earth. let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from
an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of
those who have faith and preserve their souls.
Testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. For in Christ Jesus
neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. Paul, a servant of God
and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with
So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may
be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!
Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,my salvation
and my God. For we share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong
encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that
enters into the inner place behind the curtain.
as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient,
but the things that are unseen are eternal.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.Though you have
not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and
filled with glory.

For by it(FAITH) the people of old received their commendation.
4 By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending
him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that
he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having
pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists
and that he rewards those who seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent
fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness
that comes by faith.
8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out,
not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with
Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was in the act of offering
up his only son, 18 of whom it was said, “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.” 19 He considered that
God was able even to raise him from the dead, from which, figuratively speaking, he did receive him back. 20 By faith Isaac
invoked future blessings on Jacob and Esau. 21 By faith Jacob, when dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, bowing in worship
over the head of his staff. 22 By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, made mention of the exodus of the Israelites and gave
directions concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful,
and they were not afraid of the king's edict. 24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's
daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He considered
the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt,
not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover
and sprinkled the blood, so that the Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them.
29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days. 31 By faith Rahab the prostitute
did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.
And what more shall I say?
For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets— 33 who through
faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the power of fire,
escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. 35 Women
received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to
a better life. 36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, they were sawn
in two,  they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated—
38 of whom the world was not worthy—wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 since God had provided something
better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,and by the breath of his mouth all their host.
Lift up your eyes on high and see:

He who brings out their host by number,
calling them all by name,
by the greatness of his might,
and because he is strong in power
not one is missing.
Thus shall you say to them: “The gods who did not make the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from
under the heavens.”
Not like these is he who is the portion of Jacob, for he is the one who formed all things, and Israel is the tribe of his
inheritance; the Lord of hosts is his name.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should
turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man,
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation
of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The
Lord is our righteousness.’

from his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord.
It is he who shall build the temple of the Lord and shall bear royal honor, and shall sit and rule on his throne. And there
shall be a priest on his throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

As for the word that he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all),
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;
that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to
us the message of reconciliation.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled

by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the
two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.

access in one Spirit to the Father. and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making
peace by the blood of his cross.

sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking,
and their foolish hearts were darkened.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their
deeds were evil.

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was
only evil continually.
And when the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because
of man, for the intention of man's heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature

They despised his statutes and his covenant that he made with their fathers and the warnings that he gave them. They went
after false idols and became false, and they followed the nations that were around them, concerning whom the Lord had commanded
them that they should not do like them.
“So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,

“‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with
all your strength.’“The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other
commandment greater than these.”“And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all
the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”The aim of our charge is
love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed
 in heaven. 19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my
Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
“Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but
even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. 22 And whatever you ask
in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Laborers in the Vineyard
20:1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his
vineyard. 2 After agreeing with the laborers for a denarius  a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And going out about
the third hour he saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 and to them he said, ‘You go into the vineyard too,
and whatever is right I will give you.’ 5 So they went. Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he
did the same. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you
stand here idle all day?’ 7 They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You
go into the vineyard too.’ 8 And when evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the laborers
and pay them their wages, beginning with the last, up to the first.’ 9 And when those hired about the eleventh hour
came, each of them received a denarius. 10 Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more, but each
of them also received a denarius. 11 And on receiving it they grumbled at the master of the house, 12 saying, ‘These
last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’
13 But he replied to one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take
what belongs to you and go. I choose to give to this last worker as I give to you. 15 Am I not allowed to do what I choose
with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’  16 So the last will be first, and the first last.”
Matthew 23 >>
The Parable of the Wedding Feast
22:1 And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying, 2 “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave
a wedding feast for his son, 3 and sent his servants  to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would
not come. 4 Again he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, See, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen
and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.’ 5 But they paid no attention
and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, 6 while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and
killed them. 7 The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. 8 Then he said
to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 9 Go therefore to the main roads and
invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ 10 And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom
they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 “But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment. 12 And he said to
him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said
to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Signs of the Close of the Age
3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be,
and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered them, “See that no
one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.
6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not
yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various
places. 8 All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's
sake. 10 And then many will fall away  and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise
and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures
to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to
all nations, and then the end will come.
The Abomination of Desolation
15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the
reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let the one who is on the housetop not go
down to take what is in his house, 18 and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. 19 And alas for
women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter
or on a Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now,
no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the
elect those days will be cut short. 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There
he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so
as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 So, if they say to you, ‘Look,
he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.
27 For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever
the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.
The Parable of the Ten Virgins
25:1 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps  and went to meet the bridegroom.
 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them,
4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. 6 But
at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and
trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’
9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy
for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him
to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to
us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither
the day nor the hour.
The Parable of the Talents
14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants  and entrusted to them his property. 15
To one he gave five talents,  to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He
who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had
the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's
money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received
the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I
have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.  You have been
faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two
talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ 23
His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you
over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master,
I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid,
and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You
wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you
ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28
So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and
he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant
into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over
there and pray.” 37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38
Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch  with me.” 39 And going
a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless,
not as I will, but as you will.” 40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So,
could you not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.” 42 Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass
unless I drink it, your will be done.” 43 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44 So,
leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. 45 Then he came to the disciples
and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on.  See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into
the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”
28:1 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the
tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back
the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 And for fear of him the guards
trembled and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus
who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he  lay. 7 Then go quickly
and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see
him. See, I have told you.” 8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
9 And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him.
10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
The Great Commission
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they
worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been
given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in  the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the
end of the age.”
The Parable of the Sower
4:1 Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat
in it on the sea, and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land. 2 And he was teaching them many things in parables,
and in his teaching he said to them: 3 “Listen! A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell along the
path, and the birds came and devoured it. 5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately
it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. 6 And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered
away. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. 8 And other seeds fell
into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”
9 And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
The Purpose of the Parables
10 And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables. 11 And he said to them, “To
you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables, 12 so that
“they may indeed see but not perceive,
and may indeed hear but not understand,
lest they should turn and be forgiven.”
13 And he said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? 14 The sower
sows the word. 15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and
takes away the word that is sown in them. 16 And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the
word, immediately receive it with joy. 17 And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation
or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away.  18 And others are the ones sown among thorns.
They are those who hear the word, 19 but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other
things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who
hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”
A Lamp Under a Basket
21 And he said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand? 22 For nothing
is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light. 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him
hear.” 24 And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured
to you, and still more will be added to you. 25 For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not,
even what he has will be taken away.”
The Parable of the Seed Growing
26 And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. 27 He sleeps and rises night and
day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how. 28 The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then
the full grain in the ear. 29 But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
30 And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? 31 It is like a grain
of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, 32 yet when it is sown it grows
up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests
in its shade.”
