Elevating Those Around Us (7/30)

“The Kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened” (Matthew 13:33).

It only takes a tiny amount of yeast to make a good loaf of bread. Without the yeast, the dough remains useless and inedible.

Jesus teaches us that this is how it works with our lives. We can bring others closer to Christ by the tiniest things we say and do. We also can drive people away from God.

  • How am I leaven to the members of our family?
  • What am I adding to the lives of colleagues at work of school?
  • In what ways do I display the peace of Christ to others?
