Seeds are odd things. Normally white (although they can come in different colors) seeds contain within them everything they need to bear whatever fruit lies within them. From huge watermelons to tiny flowers, only when you water and care for them does the growth take place. You won’t know simply by looking at them what they will produce, but if you tend to them with intentionality, they bear something life-giving, that, when eaten, gives life to all.
You also have the capacity to grow and achieve our purpose in God’s kingdom. You may not see it from the outside, but on the inside God has planted within you natural talents as well as God given gifts, everything to give life b helping al those you encounter.
I love that from the beginning God gave man the formula to good health: by eating foods with seeds. Why? Because every food has been naturally grown in the ground. Those natural foods are what our bodies need to give it the life giving nutrients it needs.
Just like in Genesis, everything begins with a seed. Food began with a seed that grew into a plant. We all began with the seed of our father and mother. Seeds can grow pumpkins big enough for several people to eat and enjoy, or it can produce a small flower, to bring beauty to a broken world. No seed that is cultivated goes without growth.
What can you do to cultivate the seeds of gifts and talents God has planted inside of you?
