Hope in a Jar, Green Onions & Mustard Seeds.
What do green onion scraps have to say to us about shelter-in-place and the kingdom of God? Well, this morning's video is about finding hope in small places.
The scripture I reference today is the parable of the mustard seed which can be found in Mark 4:30-32, Matthew 13:31–32, and Luke 13:18–19.
He also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”
P.S.: This video is one in a series I've been doing while we shelter in place (find the first one here).
PPS: If you want to try growing your own green onions, just save the bulbs after you cut off the green tops. Place the bulbs carefully in a jar of water. Wait until green shoots appear and the roots begin to grow, and replant in soil. You can then continue to cut the green tops for use when cooking.
