Bible Reading Enhances Any Day (BREAD)
Daily Bible Reading: Luke 13-14, Psalm 94
Luke 13:18-19 (NKJV) Then He said, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a large tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches.”
13:18-21. This passage is actually a hinge between Jesus’ teaching of the multitudes (12:54-13:21) and His teaching about the people of the kingdom (13:22-17:10). Some feel that in these brief parables about the Mustard Seed (a mustard tree, from a tiny seed, grows as tall as 12-15 feet in one season!) and the Yeast Jesus was teaching something positive about the kingdom. It seems better, however, to understand these parables as teaching something undesirable. Like pervading yeast, evil will enter the Age and become all-pervasive. This seems to be true since Luke placed this teaching immediately after the synagogue leader’s rejection of Jesus’ work on the Sabbath.

Luke 14:34-35 (NKJV) “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Psalm 94:2-3 (NKJV) Rise up, O Judge of the earth; Render punishment to the proud. LORD, how long will the wicked, How long will the wicked triumph?
