Matthew 13.31-33, 44-52
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
He put before them another parable: ‘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.’
The Parable of the Yeast
He told them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman
took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.’
‘The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found
and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
‘Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on
finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
‘Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and
caught fish of every kind; when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put
the good into baskets but threw out the bad. So it will be at the end of the age.
The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous and throw them
into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Treasures New and Old
‘Have you understood all this?’ They answered, ‘Yes.’ And he said to them,
‘Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the
master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.’
Words from Psalm 119 verses 129 to 136
Thy testimonies are wonderful : therefore doth my soul keep them.
When thy word goeth forth : it giveth light and understanding unto the simple.
I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath : for my delight was in thy
O look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me : as thou usest to do unto those
that love thy Name.
Order my steps in thy word : and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.
O deliver me from the wrongful dealings of men : and so shall I keep thy
Shew the light of thy countenance upon thy servant : and teach me thy statutes.
Mine eyes gush out with water : because men keep not thy law.
Prayer for the Seventh Sunday of Trinity
Generous God, you give us gifts and make them grow: though our faith is small as
mustard seed, make it grow to your glory and the flourishing of your kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour Christ has taught us
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come; thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the
kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
