Introducing Have You Got Mustard? A Study Guide for Growing Faith

A Bible Study Guide for Growing Faith
Have You Got Mustard

Back in January, I was inspired to develop a Bible Study.  It took me a few weeks to get it done.  It was first published on March 5, 2014.    This guide is called:  Have You Got Mustard?  A  Bible Study Guide for Growing Faith and is available on Amazon Kindle as of April 16, 2016.  The study is based on the parables related to growing faith from a small mustard seed into something larger and stronger (Matthew 13:31-32, Matthew 17:20, Mark 4:31-32,  Luke 13:19, Luke 17:6).  

M-U-S-T-A-R-D is used as an acronym that represents the seven actions each person should take to increase their personal faith.  The seven actions are:  Move, Unite, Seek, Trust, Act, Repeat, and Deploy.  For each action, weekly study programs containing five scriptures are presented. At the end of the program, readers are given a planning form to decide what they should do next.

Potential audiences for this study guide include:
  • Individuals who want a personal study program.  It may be completed in about a week if a chapter per day is covered.  Or use it as a daily devotional by concentrating on a different daily scripture reading from each chapter, then the program may run seven or eight weeks.  See “Study Methods” section for details.
  • Home or Church study groups can use it in various teaching formats such as weekly meetings or a retreat.  Discussion questions are included at the end of each lesson for   M-U-S-T-A-R-D.  Group facilitator instructions are included in the “Study Methods” section of the guide.  Also group facilitators can find Have You got Mustard? PowerPoint slideshow available on  If facilitators would like a flyer to discuss doing the study with a group or for promotional purposes in planning, check to download.  Print study group and meeting details on the back of this flyer if using it to promote the start of a group study.
