If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, “Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,” and it would obey you. Luke 17:6

The symbolism of the seed is used throughout Scripture. In this text, Jesus challenged His followers to have faith as a “seed.” Jesus is called the “Seed” (Gen. 3:15); the Word of God is designated as “seed” (Luke 8:11; 1 Pet. 1:23); the growth of the believer is likened to a plant (John 15); and the evangelism of the world to a harvest (Matt. 13:30). This only begins the imagery of “seed faith” in the Bible. It is altogether desirable to capture a firm grasp of this truth, the essence of which is that the little we have to bring to God is not a limit to faith’s possibilities. When we bring Him the smallest of our strength, our resource, and our ability, and place it in His hands—sown like a seed—there is a guaranteed fruitfulness and harvest forthcoming. Is there anything in your life that you hesitate to place in His hands? Do not fear! He is faithful and He guarantees an abundant harvest!
