READ THE  SCRIPTURE

Mark 4: 26-34 (Common English Bible)

 

"Never Without a Storey"

 

26-29 Then Jesus said, “God’s kingdom is like seed thrown on a field by a man who then goes to bed

and forgets about it. The seed sprouts and grows—he has no idea how it happens. The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain. When the grain is fully formed, he reaps—harvest time!

 

30-32 “How can we picture God’s kingdom? What kind of story can we use? It’s like an acorn. When it lands on the ground it is quite small as seeds go, yet once it is planted it grows into a huge oak tree with thick branches. Eagles nest in it.”

 

33-34 With many stories like these, he presented his message to them, fitting the stories to their experienceand maturity. He was never without a story when he spoke. When he was alone with his disciples, he went over everything, sorting out the tangles, untying the knots.

 

 

SING ALONG WITH HYMN

“All Things Bright and Beautiful”  #30 Worship and Rejoice Hymnal

 

Chorus: All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.

 

Verse 1: Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors and made their tiny wings. Chorus

 

Verse 2: The purple-headed mountain, the river running by,
The sunset and the morning that brightens up the sky. Chorus

 

Verse 3: The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden: God made them every one. Chorus

 

Verse 4: God gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty, who has made all things well. Chorus
