The basic principle of Chaos Theory is that small actions can have major and unpredictable effects. The parable of the mustard seed is another way of saying this. Something very small can grow into something very large and meaningful. In Luke 13:10-21, the parable of the mustard seed is preceded by Jesus healing a woman – empowering her and moving away from the margins back to the center. This is the combination of the a concrete example of the Kingdom and a parable visualizing that same of idea of small actions – growing into something much larger.
