Therefore is this kingdom like to a grain of mustard - seed, which a man took and sowed in his field.  By the man that sowed it in his field, many understand to be meant the Saviour, because He is the Sower That soweth in the souls of believers ; others understand every man that soweth good seed in his own field, that is, in himself and in his own heart.
