One Year Bible Reading Guide:

Deuteronomy 33:1-29
Luke 13:1-21
Psalm 78:65-72
Proverbs 12:25


Verse of the day:

He also asked, “What else is the Kingdom of God like? It is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough." (Luke 13:20-21)


Jesus asked his listeners one day a very important question; He asked “What is the Kingdom of God like?”

Jesus wanted us to understand the Kingdom of God and the principles by which it operates so he gives us a big idea in these short verses: the Kingdom starts small and it grows big.

Each time I’ve traveled to Israel I’m struck by the humble beginnings of Jesus. Born of a virgin teenage mother in a small town with a poor reputation, Jesus was just a country boy. To this day, the area where he spent his life and ministry is remote and unremarkable. And many people in Jesus’ day missed the reality that he was the Christ because they were expecting more. That was then. Today, He’s worshiped on every continent by a few billion people on earth as God and Savior. In Acts, the church starts with 120 people in a room. God likes to start small and go big, that’s why we’re encouraged to never despise simple, humble beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). How is the Kingdom of God at work in your life?
