For 27 October 2009, Tuesday of 30th week, based on Luke 13:18-21
He said therefore, â€œWhat is the kingdom of God like? And to what should I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.â€ And again he said, â€œTo what should I compare the kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.â€
