Yelling at a flower

Yelling at a flower
Doesn’t make it grow
It won’t grow any higher
If it’s feeling low
Anger changes little
Just keeps the status quo
Yelling at a flower
Doesn’t make it grow.

Yelling at a flower
Doesn’t make it grow
The still voice of the Spirit
Is wisdom put on show
You can’t get light from darkness
You can’t get heat from snow
Yelling at a flower
Doesn’t make it grow.

From a little grows a lot

A garden, a tree and one law
A whisper
A temptation
From a little grows a lot.

Five loaves, two fish and one boy
Feed five thousand
Twelve baskets remain
From a little grows a lot.

Seven loaves and a few disciples
Feed four thousand
Seven baskets remain
From a a little grows a lot.

A believer, a few of his friends
Bread from a basket, a coffee
Shares, inspires, informs, imparts
From a little grows a lot.

A harvest of grain
First the blade, then the kernel
Then the kernel becomes complete
From a little grows a lot.

John, Herod, a wife and a daughter
A rebuke then a dance
A platter
From a little grows a lot.

An eye that sees
An ear that hears
A mind that remembers
From a little grows a lot.

The Father, the Covenant and the Son
The Seed dies in the ground
Becomes The Life
From a little grows a lot.

Three thousand people in Jerusalem
Believing hearts
Birth of the church
From a little grows a lot.

A throne, a sanctuary,
Blood sprinkled
A full house
From a little grows a lot.

Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They said to Him, “Twelve.” “Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?” And they said, “Seven.” So He said to them, “How is it you do not understand?” (‭Mark‬ ‭8‬:‭18-21‬ NKJV)

Then He said, “To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it? It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.” (‭Mark‬ ‭4‬:‭30-32‬ NKJV)

Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (‭Luke‬ ‭14‬:‭23‬ NKJV)
