There’s nothing special about Ezekiel’s branch. It’s just a twig. And there’s certainly nothing extraordinary about a farmer sowing his seed. Farmers have done that for thousands of years. Nor is there anything especially attractive about a mustard seed. Mustard seeds are small, very small. Yet each of these are used by the Lord in our text to teach something quite extraordinary – for each of these reveal the Kingdom of God. You see the Kingdom of God isn’t about the mighty, the extraordinary or the attractive.
