Faith is like a seed (27th Sunday OT)

Benjamin God & Faith, Homilies

The mustard seed is a little speck of a seed, but it has the power to grow into a whole plant.  Seeds are amazing; everything that makes up an entire plant is packed into a tiny little package to be spread about, looking for fertile soil where it can grow.  The faith is very much like a seed that God plants in our heart.  If we do not harden our hearts, but give faith room to grow, then this seed can become a strong tree that shelters our life.
