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 flower; it permeated every part of the dough.” -Luke 13:20-21
You and I are the church! We make up the kingdom of God! We may be small in numbers, depending where we are, but with the help of the Holy Spirit we can spread quickly! We are like the yeast in dough. Every act of kindness spreads God’s love throughout the kingdom. Our love for others and our compassion offered to people everywhere helps to grow God’s kingdom. It doesn’t take a huge number of people nor does it take a large offering. Just like the scripture says, a little yeast goes a long way! A little love goes a long way to permeate the lives of those who don’t know Jesus. You never know who you will touch and how far your love will spread!
