Yeast is a small ingredient that makes a big difference. In fact, it can make or break a recipe. A small amount of yeast can affect an entire bowl of dough. Yeast causes a chemical reaction that changes the composition of dough, making it rise; but once yeast is added, it becomes invisible. You only see its effects. Jesus talked about yeast in several of his parables, and in today’s he likens it to faith. Like yeast, faith is an invisible ingredient, but it has a large impact. An illustration of this can be viewed in this short clip from the popular series The Great British Baking Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogmeLMuPgxk.
