Parable of the mustard seed andthe Leven
Both are about the Kingdom
Both Speak of small beginnings
The focus of the leven is not large andsmall but rather a hidden beginning thatwill result in the completion of God&#39;s workin the Kingdome.
Not the same as yeast
Leven is old fermented dough
Yeast is the driving force behindfermentation, the magical process thatallows a dense mass of dough to become awell-risen loaf of bread. And yet yeast isnothing more than a single-celled fungus.

Lots of pressure to be grand
Grand is not the norm
The effect of Leven is hidden
