All seeds are incredible creations. Each one develops into a plant that grows at n amazing rate, with intricate design and for a specific purpose. Trees, fruits, flowers and vegetables all are given to bless us and help sustain us. Many plants also contain elements that are use to heal us and help restore our health and strength. But seeds must be planted and gardens must be tended and then harvested for all this to be possible.
Remember that seeds were made by God for his glory. Even we ourselves are born of a tiny seed in the womb of our mother for his glory. But our seed is corrupted by sin and subject to wither and die. So Jesus said “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” The reason the Lord came was to die for our sin that many would be made righteous in the sight of God. The planting of his body in a grave and his resurrection from that plot of ground brought God glory and is bringing many children to become living witnesses to his presence, here in the earth and in heaven forever.
Gardens require love, work and care if they are going to be fruitfull. Yet so few seeds can bless so many! Praise God with every seed you plant in a garden. Most of all, sow your own life like a seed that others may see your good works and in turn give glory to God.
