    Jeff, thank you for giving me a deeper, personal view of these two parables. I have heard them many times, but today, I heard them speak to me. I am a 10th grade catechist and I have this amazing picture of the mustard seeds God has given me to nurture and I will keep in mind that I cannot tell if there is a weed among them. God bless you for your insight and ministry.
