parable_of_the_mustard_seed

The grain of mustard seed is the Lord, Who is sown by faith in the Spirit in the hearts of those who receive Him. The one who carefully cultivates it through the virtues moves the mountain of earthly purpose by driving away from himself with authority the tenacious habit of wickedness. Then the reasons and forms of the commandments, which are the divine powers, will come as birds from heaven to rest in him. St. Maximus the Confessor, Chapters on Knowledge
