Matthew 13: 33

13:33 He spoke another parable to them. “The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, until it was all leavened.”


I make a lot of bread, so I like this parable, but I don’t know if I understand it. The other metaphors fr the Kingdom of Heaven in this chapter seem to focus on separating the sinners from the worthy. This seems to be saying something completely different: you only need a bit of the Kingdom inside you, and it will infect your whole being.
