The Seed

Each Holy Cloaks clergy stole has a tiny mustard seed is tucked away. Why you may ask? This “Seed” is to remind us that our faith is like a mustard seed. It begins as one of the smallest of seeds and grows into a large tree with many branches. Our faith, like the mustard seed, begins when we are very small and grows through out our lives, continually growing and reaching new heights.

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

The mustard is an annual plant with one of the smallest of all seeds. This plant is common in the Eastern world; it grows easily and spread like a weed. Jesus was referring to the black mustard seed, which was grown for its production of oil. The mustard plant grows up to fifteen feet tall and has a thick trunk with strong enough branches to bear the weight of a bird.

The parable of the mustard seed is found three times in the Bible: Luke 13: 18-19, Mathew 13: 31-32 and Mark 4: 30-32.

“He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds and the air come and perch in its branches.” Matthew 13: 31-32

“Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air perch in its shade.” Mark 4: 30-32

“Then Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches.” Luke 13: 18-19
