Here's a parable that's on my heart at the moment: Mat 13:31-32 (31) Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: (32) Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. I've done a lot of gardening and agricultural work in my life...know a bit about seeds and what they produce. Most seeds are small...mustard seeds tiny. The kingdom of heaven is likened, not just to this tiny seed but to the way it grows and increases to become a perfect support structure for those desiring it.
