The Mustard Seed

Something as tiny as a seed to something as big as a tree! 

Let’s not forget to talk to our children about the stages in between. The time when it looks like there’s nothing there when the seen is buried. The time when it’s a sapling and it’s hard to believe that it could ever be a tree. 

This is like our faith. Jesus didn’t tell this parable and expect people to have faith like trees instantly, He told this because just like a tree starts as a seed, so does our faith. 

We at times, may also question if our faith is there and growing. But so long as the seed is there, and we’re giving our faith opportunity to grow, let’s have faith that it is, even if it’s not quite a mighty tree just yet.

Child Involvement:

  • Cut on the dotted lines on trunk then insert them over each other.
  • Fold the leaves in half and glue between the sections on the tree.
