Though [the mustard seed] is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants. - Matthew 13:32 (NIV)
In the 1940s, Floyd Smith ordered a small packet of bamboo shoots in the mail and planted them on his property in Prattville, Alabama. Today, his land is preserved as a county park, and visitors can enjoy what is now a thick bamboo forest with plants standing over sixty feet...
God can grow small seeds of faith into a forest.
