Defer Judgment until the Final Day 

Matthew 13:24-33 NRSV

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” (Matthew 13:31b-32)

When we sow seeds of God’s word in the lives of others, we may not instantly see the growth but we can trust God for the harvest.

Pray for the 28th Connectional Christian Education and Youth Congress; June 27-30, 2018; Atlanta, GA that it might be fertile spiritual ground for deep learning that will spring forth into new fruit for the transformation of lives, congregations, communities, countries, and the world.
