A story by Jesus

Here’s what happened when Ellie and Jenny read this Bible story together.


Ellie is 9 and lives in Tasmania.

Ellie asks: “What does it mean when it says heaven is like a mustard seed but it gets really big?”



Jenny says: “A seed is small, but it grows into something that is big. When we do something for another person, like treating them kindly, it may seem small to us but it can make a big difference to them. When lots of people do that, it makes an even bigger difference. So something that seemed small to begin with will really end up making the world more like God planned it to be and a better place for lots of people: that is bringing about the kingdom of heaven.”
