Luke 8:11 – Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Beans are a form of a seed, which alot of people don’t fully recognize. There are many myths and uses for beans in ancient society. In Scott Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs he cites that in Scotland only the highest-ranking priestesses were allowed to plant or cook the bean.The High Priestesses believed that the Earth Goddess birthed these seeds and regarded them as possessing the life force of the great ancestors, because they came as gifts from the dirt, which they believed all mankind was first conceived. Beans have been used to ward off evil spirits and for good luck.

BUT IS THIS BIBLICAL?
In the Bible, seeds, which the bean family falls in to, are likened to faith by Jesus Christ. For example, he uses the mustard seed to express how the destiny of a grand design can be found in a small thing.
The Parables of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast
31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
Every farmer knows that at the right season if they plant their seeds or beans it will yield a harvest. How much of this is faith in their visualization and geological science? There is a Spirit element to all things created on the earth. Genesis 1: 11And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants[e] yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. In Ancient times, the earth was seen as Mother Goddess who birthed all of creation.
