Scripture ingredient: Mark 8: 15
Yeast is that which makes bread expand and rise; a little yeast in a lump of dough will cause it to become a much larger loaf.
In his teaching, Jesus warns us of the yeast of the Pharisees.
The lesson here is to rise through painful circumstances. Though we may be persecuted and mocked in our Christian walk, God desires us to rise beyond the limited expectations of our enemies.
